Transient Joy

Standard

The wait staff would squirm uncomfortably
when she would request
they surprise her with a meal

She didn’t like to order from a menu
as she spent so much of her time
making difficult and careful decisions

She delighted in abdicating
when she could

…it was just one meal
…hair could regrow
…walls be repainted

Even hearts
could reanimate
after a hiatus

She found every impermanence
a deliverance
