Passing Phase




















Admitting it is more than just a passing phase 
suggests there’s wisdom there, insight gained 
being aware of prejudiced purviews on issues 
larger than one’s egos contemplation – a rare 
advantage but you’ll likely waste it anyway as 
you have to be fair and parse it into wages; & 
that isn’t easy – okay, a mild bout, just a wee 
bit of depression per se, but no worries 

Now we’re where we can see that’s depression 
sitting on your shoulder – and you want to say 
it isn’t as bad as you’re making it seem; whew, 
we’d have never known if you had not been so 
open and honest – concealing only an inability 
to not be depressed about being depressed
