100 Words: Just

Just is a word used to minimize and limit.
It saps verbs of their agency.

Just is short for “if I may” or “will you allow”.

If it’s ok with you, I just feel.
If you allow me, I just need.
If you agree, I just think.

Just is an apology before the action ever takes place.

I’m sorry I want.
I’m sorry I feel.
I’m sorry I think.

It implies “I can be smaller. I can be less.”

This word permeates me.
It is threaded through every fiber, down to my genes.

Thus I speak myself from the world.
