Over it

A free verse poem

Photo by Austin Neill on Unsplash

I’ll often climb a gate
instead of opening it
just because I can.
My bendy body lets me,
wants to,
finds it joyous
to spend half-a-second in the air
before it meets the Earth.
As I take off,
like bird from branch,
I’m temporarily unstuck from life:
those red kites understand.
