Instruction Manual and Warranty for Emotional Duct Tape

(Inspired by the comments on this post.)

1. Forget, or
if you can’t, which
is imperfectly normal, don’t; instead,
take a hose.
Fill
spaces with better things
even if it means you can’t
distinguish between words
as easily and
if it pops back up like
a dormant virus, remind it
why there is a guest list for your consciousness;
find the Whack-A-Troll hammer
and commence.

2. Do not mistake
this for a Band-Aid.
Or surgical tape.

3. Do not place on
openly injured areas (veins,
heart, lungs,
dreams, hope, and skin cells
included) or
into water slash
tears slash
sweat stains; any
environments subject to heat should
be avoided including
rage, fury, anger, hatred, fear, and
other synonyms.

4. Emotional duct tape should
not be treated as
a replacement for ice cream,
talks with best friends, cheesy
pretzels, the smell of
a new book, or
dancing in the rain.
