Tightropes

April 11, 2018

i’ve always wanted to walk

on the telephone lines
swinging from each
thin

rope of silver tinted copper
to the next

and on those tightropes in the sky
that cut the sad graying clouds
and bright green stalks of overgrown broccoli
in half

i would leap like a monkey
onto their only support

of decaying soft
wooden poles
