on a wire, happiness

on a wire, happiness
prefers the double
somersault, sometimes
performed backwards –
between experience
and innate balance,
there is ample
room to fail, enough
of a drop to coast

in everything done

in everything done
well, there is a certain
level of performance
involved – creativity
takes wing, and for
a moment, we may
be allowed to bask
in the slipstream

the neighbors upstairs

the neighbors upstairs
are rehearsing their
three a.m. scene
again – two
pairs of god-given
lungs made of the
same brilliant mettle,
awake and stirringly
alive, a private
performance
for
an audience of
at least twenty
families – he thinks
she’s overly
dramatic, she
thinks he should
go to hell, and
the majority of
the action
creaks stage left
.

when you start

when you start
dreaming that
you’ve won tickets
to Shakespeare
in the Park’s Into
the Woods
performance, beat
the system – that
daily, yet elusive,
virtual ticket
drawing –
everything else
suddenly
makes sense:
the Norseman
Xtreme Triathlon
black t-shirt in the
closet, the Pulitzer
on the mantel, the
Clydesdale prepped
and ready to go in the
backyard, and under
electrochromic glass,
the Key to the City
