Favorite Date

My favorite date is the day when I left

my old definition of trust behind:

the way we trust a movie and its action on screen,

like a hobbit claiming his hero role;

the words we speak to a friend or two to let them in,

to break down a passage of time and prove

that forgiveness is now in its place;

or simply to trust in the self.

For to let go used to mean so much in language–

now it is little more than letting my own breath give way.
