not quite optimism: 4-21-12

Published April 21, 2012 by April Fox

quiet
and the day needs to rest
bright sun and clouds crept low against my skin
made it breathe in life and joy and
fear
that i kept down
and pushed away
change is the centrifuge keeping me from
breaking into particles that
separate
are unbearable
and small.

i can trust this
i think.

no edict, no scribbled vows or
poetic-written promises
spoken for a judge or holy
shaman-man could make this any more
than what it is:
the promise, implied
and whispered to the darkness
this is where we are
and this is where we’ll stay.
