Sit with it, for as long as you want. Grow comfortable in its presence.
Touch it, feel its steady pulse. It has the skin of a reptile.
Accept. Look at it. Let its cold dark fingers caress your face.
Write about it, if it helps. Paint it, sing it, build it, talk about it, rationalize it, study it, throw it away.
And in the momentary pause between heart-rending sorrow and familiar apathy, pop it in your mouth and swallow it.
