This Arrival

Oh, go on!
trembling mouth,
and mounting
heartbeat,
for how is it
that your hands
do shake
at the possibility
of an unforeseen
future
you have only
seen in dreams?

So, go on!
and bite your
lip, and breathe
in deeply,
the mysterious,
and stuff your
shaking hands
inside your pockets,
if you must,
so they will not see
how frightening
this arrival
of hope can be.
