New poem?

Stop.

Be still,
be quiet,
be calm.

When the fire in the spine
and the embers in the hips
and the fog in the mind
have torn your heart asunder;

when the aloneness
and the loneliness
and the memories
disappear;

put on your smile,
let the tears wash away.
Pretend it's all good;
pretend it's all right.
