A Kind of Trust

A Poem About Leaning Into the Unknown

eyes open
palms turning up,
even in darkness

the air,
every breath given
and then let go,

before it came into this body
it was exchanged
in the complex interior labyrinth
of countless other beings
for eons

this heart, beating
my-o-cardium

raise this cup
and drink

it may be that
to be truly alive
in this uncertain world
is. . .
