Sea legs

sol

Just when I think

I’ve steadied myself against the refusal

of any single day to be solid, steady

Just when I think

I’ve righted all that was toppled in the prior storm

Battened down anything that might

not be counted on to stay secure

Just then

A squall blows in

Unforecast and never from the side you’d think

And I’m right back to

those first, awful days,

when I couldn’t take a step without falling.
