What To Believe

by Jill Chan

We are relieved.

We are laughing once again.

My body seems to go about its business

of finding it where we want it.

Here, out of the way

of complicated thinking.

Being simple like this,

knowing a thing is done by doing.

We leave what we reached after

before we could be

left alone with our wanting,

now still only ours, will be ours

until we have

lived and lived

in our loneliness

nothing could die

but some dark

we never caught.
