exhalation

October 1, 2019

yes: a week of slow exhalation
reaching out purblind for the usual
rails to run along
while the better angels
tango on a pinhead
unfading smiles linger
in the parts of the brain
associated with the future
and the delicate networks
of love gain their strength
the silver thread is a beam of light
a faithful guitar string
a willing tightrope
a steel cable
a chain of atoms
that stretch between
as long as it needs to be
no more no less
and we say to life: yes
