Difference

What’s the difference

between the left hand

of tomorrow

and a deep breath of next week

 

or going downhill  

out of control in a tunnel

and barefoot in damp sunshine

in a green grass field

 

the disconnect in bones and muscle

that comes with age

and the top of a reaching up leap

to grab the branch of a friendly tree

 

you can’t stay there swinging

for long

gravity won’t stop waiting

for you on the ground
