swerve in the path

swerve in the path
note to self

see those curves
ahead? lean into
them, bank with care
sail around the bend
eyes wide open and
inquisitive—it’s only
a swerve in the path

some are gentle arcs
others abrupt left turns—
surprising but crucial
in this fleeting life
a dash-and-dance
with much to learn
and so soon gone

attend and breathe—
a gentle remedy for
what ails you
