Make a great circle
a hundred feet around.

Drop in it all the things
that scare you.

Fly into the air
five hundred feet

a thousand feet.
Higher — ten thousand feet.

Ten thousand feet.

E x p a n d to fill the sky.

Look down at your circle.

How does the center shape
the boundary?

See the things that scare you
held safely

in the circle’s embrace.

See the boundary
become the center.

Goblins and ghosts flow back
in time

become children, toddlers, beloved

Return, fly home
with the sun in your wings.
