Down

A floor of pillows

Repeated falling;

Falling in front of you

Over and over;

You see me get up,

But it’s the fall you remember.

Away from you, towards you,

A dive with closed eyes

And stillness.

“Open them” I say,

As I gather and unfold to my feet.

I gently push your arms down, back towards your sides

And keep my eyes fixed on yours;

Even after landing.
