Keep the Light Inside

when life
perches
delicately
on the high wire
of possibility, and
trust
is the word
that beats between
two lungs,
those meticulous contingency plans
prepared in emotional
sobriety will
fly
out the hospital window, leaving
hands
holding hands, clasped tight
to keep the light
inside.
