Friday Night at Rest

Two glasses of wine
and a concerto by Chopin…
such perfect deliverance.

Elevated, soaring over the earth
suspended there
in the realm of stratospheric rest
oblivious to the hornet’s nest
of earthly care.

All the world below
forgotten as I remember
and breathe in,

this refreshment, this nocturnal air.
