Confidence

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Secret Santa.”

Elbows on the subway, between laughs
and eye contact.

Excitement in the winter air,
breath puffing out like smoke
before the doors open.

Heart full and thumping madly
Hands deft and art unraveling

Your voice, rampant and strong
carrying high into the air, and cushioned by applause.

Confidence purchases more than your tone
your job
your place on the planet.

It brings your dreams.
