Monkey bars

“She’s everything you dream about
  But don’t fall in love
  If you do you’ll find out she don’t love you”
    ~ The Tubes, “She’s a Beauty” from the album Outside Inside (1983)

She’s at the top
Overseeing the playground
A vision
From the stuck up environ
Plenty of room up there
Not for me
If she didn’t throw me off right away
Through touch of sun-roughed skin and tousled hair
So delightful
How could I not fall

The vision oversees me
Longing makes me look
Look away
When she looks back
It’s too hard
At the bottom
I already know
Only too well

No one’s at the top
While the playground otherwise remains
As it was since she fell
Fracturing a kneecap
Here they stand
Empty
No overseeing vision
Of rough and tumble fun we could’ve had
Brings on a fall

Thanks always returns
