I lay down deep in the heat of the moment

sanguine in my victory

Hands shaking

breathless

exhausted

I work hard for this triumph

in increments and stops and starts

in lost moments and abandoned efforts

battles won and lost and won again

 

every small success

every established and met goal

 

I hold a universe of effort

a steely will

a fatigued dogged perseverance

in the palms of my hand

 

on the best days

and the worst

for these small successes
