Trying

We awake secretly hoping
that one of us has an answer
to a question we never asked.

I wait for you to crack a smile
or wince but you just ramble on
about bulls and bears and cutting
our losses.

I swat your hand like you’re the
devil but really I’m the pest—
beggars never win.

I don’t hold the sun in my palm.
Neither do you.

But we wallow in the glaring rays.

Together.

It just might be enough.
