Give It Up

You never know
whom you will meet.
By every measure
it’s a treat to make
acquaintances –

a treasure to encounter
bits and squirts of human
bounty – stir its cauldron's
living spices –
sip from its forgiving

vices – maybe sit awhile
with someone on
an eggplant-colored-
couch and flirt
with minty delicacy –

vouch in flinty silence
to determine who it is
you’re with and what
it’s all about – then
give it up in all the senses

of that phrase you’ve
got the courage not
to doubt. Surrendering
to anyone and anything
is everything.
