Breath and Instinct

Spirits in a trance, two impulses
take fleeting form in you:
one, faintly warm, attempts to push

beyond the other – who, abstractly
cool, impedes by gentle awkward
reflex to restrain – impediment

and prod too slight to lose or gain –
or matter. Rising, falling, floating:
breath and instinct scatter.
