Awareness

It is hardest to breathe when you feel each inhalation.
hardest to sleep when you’re thinking of dreaming.
your tongue weighs heaviest when its weight is mentioned,
and the hour seems longest when counted.
I suppose it could be said,
like glazing-over on a highway,
that life is easiest when you aren’t
aware of living at all.
