Optimism

I like the way
Good fortune
Is something you can find
on the inside of a cookie
or the bottom of a purse

In the bending of your body
or the reach of your arms
your diaphragm moving
your heart calming down

As you flip through the channels
as you dig through the bins
the one you’ve been looking for
the last hidden gem

While you’re feeling befuddled
or forcing a smile
an off-handed comment
in a genuine style

I like the way
Good fortune
Is something you can find
For as long as you’re looking.
