An Interval

Sometimes the troubles lift away
like startled winter pigeons,
and I’m free alone, open to the sky,
humors balanced on the pivot
of equanimity, imagining myself
forever light, the troubles never
turning back to perch again,
heavy, and indifferent as the moon.

This piece appears in Molecule.
