Unsteady

I am

in two places

at once

Standing on the pine needles

a watcher in the woods

Simultaneously

on the merry-go-round

which is spinning

fast

so very, very fast

as if powered by a rocket

g-force achieved

No matter where I stand

it is

all blur

dizziness

breathlessness

adrenaline

terror

unknowing

Will white knuckled grip

on smooth metal bar

be lost?

How far the flight?

How hard the landing?

How high the collateral damage?

How broken the woman?
