This is a turning point–I can see that now. Though my body remains sweat-stuck to a stiff chair and my hands hang limply at my sides, this is a turning point.

received

Message received.

acrobat

Crazy, that acrobat swing
How she rat-a-tat ‘cross that
Trapeze thing
Death trap, heart attack,
Ready, set, fling–
Fly! lady acrobat
Waiting in the wings.
