Better Than Me…

You chase my skirt

Blowing in the wind, always too diminutive to catch it

And then, at last you run

Finding your legs, finding your lungs

The speed in which you proceed, I can’t catch you

Quickness becomes you

Hands on my knees…I slow down to catch my breath

But, you hold on to my skirt, only to light a torch to it

Burning my courage where I left it

I am ash compared to you

Still, you are brilliant in your lack of words

Your silence dies with the last drink of red wine

But if I can just taste you…

I’d live another day and you’d still be better than me
