Fall Equinox

Fall Equinox
(after NoExit’s “Bad Wolf”)

We look desperately for signs of balance
Because the illusion of perfection
Lies there

Imbalance, though, is where perfection hides
Waves and winds make every moment now
Never again

Today, a small tribe of children
defeated a big bad wolf puppet
With fairy dust

But the magic was in the kid
Who shouted “Hey birdy” from the swings
To a costumed actor
Between shows

And in the moment when the bird
Took a seat on the next swing
And the two creatures flew
Briefly
Perfectly
Together
