Not Alone

Stepping out into the dawn
I breathed deep the mountain air
clean and cold

A day after surgery, I felt
like a new person, cleansed
of worry

Later on, my knee collapsed
at the coffee shop, another sign
of aging, but a black woman

came to my assistance
and helped me to my car
making me feel

not alone
