There are moments in life that are perfect, simply perfect.
Wonder

That Autumn night
I rode my bike home
and it was so perfect
I sat alone
on the front steps.

The wind blew the
rustling leaves
down the street,
and it was dark,
quiet, and solemn --

a supernal council
of just leaves, wind,
and me.

I sat there until
I was cold
and sleepy, and

I was fifteen,

and there was
still wonder
in the world.
