Like You're Onto Something


I feel it in my bones.

I feel it in how the air
touches my skin, differently.

In how everything
takes on the new significance
of a celebrated

Nuances upon nuances
that catch me
in awe.

Like I'm onto something.

I feel it in how,
when I rest my chin
on my hand
there's a different ease
in how it rests.

Relaxing into exactly
where I've have been heading
for so long.
