Fragile Trust in a Changing World

Trust these tears,
Trust these fears,
Trust these days,
Trust these nights.

Trust myself to stop holding on,
Trust myself to stop fixing,
Trust the universe to do the holding,
Trust the sun, trust the moon,
Trust the sea, trust the sky,
Trust the fluttering wings of fear,
Trust the burning,
Trust the rough and shallow breathing,
Trust the piano wire lifting shoulders,
Trust the grey waves of mercury,
Trust the rising waves of soapy dread.

Chest of fear
Eyes of tear
Low down low
Birthday blue
