WIND ASSISTED
(6/12/17)

sometimes
we don't have
to be good

the prevailing
vicissitudes
simply choose
to favor us

we become
better
than we
should be

albeit
briefly

very
briefly

and when
our run
is done

we are left
only
with a smile
of remembrance
at our performance

a smile
fading quickly
as the reality
of our true
natures
return
