That light switch always gives
a little shock
when I touch it in this dry January air
& still every time
it surprises me like a goldfish
circling the same water, losing its place
without a thought.
She sends a similar spark that lifts me
into the air
with that smile that could never
& I’m jolted into jagged lines
of unexpected experiences once again lost
without a worry.
