Birthdays

In the remaining hours

before the birthday becomes,

hopes and fears dangle

like the New Year’s ball

suspended stationary for

so many days

until the last moments

when the trickle becomes

a plunge

the scales are teetering

heaped with reflection

balanced by foreshadow

neither worth the

weight of their worry

but each a coin that

jangles in my pocket

this morning.
