Ode to An Elevated Heartbeat

(Published August 2021)

You remind me I am alive

in a quick tempo tango.

Dance along my nerves

until my blood applauds

in speed and adrenaline.

I find myself dressed up

for the occasion

in sweat and shivers

as the soundtrack

of sudden drops, instant heights,

and thunderous shouts

pulls me center stage.

I must learn a new routine

on the fly.

All I can do is reach out

for calm hands

and let my partner named Rationality

count out the steps

softly in my ear.
