Confidence

One tap.
Lazy waves drag themselves.
‘Til they lay. 
Supine. 
Two taps.
Waves walk about as if without
Their morning coffee:
Uninspired.
Drab.
Three taps.
Waves jog about like
Marathon men through an autumn breeze.
Inspirited; Energized.
Confidence courses throughout their…
Tap! Tap! Tap! Tap!
Waves dash about like
The caffeinated hearts of track runners 
Sprinting towards the 100m line!
They dash about like
Team members running to congratulate 
the winner of the race!
They dash about like an enjambment of lines
Without punctuation
They dash about…
Like
A Sudden fervor of
The
Heart.
