fifteen point seven

fifteen point seven
seconds of conviction feels
like a lifetime, holds
the potential of a rocket
before launch, contains
the entire pledge of
allegiance – and still,
comes to very little
steadfastness, strength,
and poise, at the end
of the count, when the body
yields, when lips part
.
