we are too weighed down by our ideas and our minds

we are too weighed down by our ideas 
our minds
our wants
our ideals
our habits and our fears 
our shames and our sighs

our minds are heavy
look how we all walk with our heads
trailing like heavy baggage behind us
they just can not keep upright anymore
all these orthopaedic concerns are because of
our heavy heads
i am surprised they have not exploded yet
thanks to all our smartphones, laptops and tablets
they carry a part of the great heaviness
of too many ideas
what would we have done if we could not steer
the overflow into these metal brains?
maybe because we have these metal brains
our fleshy brains just keep on churning the thinking
the computing
the inventing
continual stimulation between inorganic and organic matter

fuck this!
arch out our backs
lift our heads
and shake all the heaviness out
be light and empty 
feel the air move between our ribs
our diaphragms
and every cell
feel our feet 
losing touch with the earth
start to rise
and float to the lightness of the clouds
