how i see the world as a playground
when i challenge to jump the highest
from the swing sets,
big kids size
and, though i never land it
my grace and style gives me 10’s
all around the sandbox
children holding up
their scorecards and oh
if i could change my middle name to
without relying on the mystical
friends that live in my mind when
i can find or afford them.
this is what i’m always working on.


One thought on “some poor metaphor about swingsets or something
