TRUST

When we fly
we trust the wind
to hold us up

We skate
with faith
that the ice
is sturdy beneath us

We know our car
can careen and crash

yet we slip inside every day
trusting,
trusting.

We shop
we have a glass of wine
on the plane
we keep paying for our purchases

Trusting
that there are no black tumors inside us
no plastic explosives on our plane

and that the ice that we skate on
is sturdy enough

even
for us.
