The Effectiveness of Grass

Upon your feet

Meadow at Nine Thousand, Hopping to Space, by John Levin

I think the Earth has found me,
though I didn’t realize
I was so lost.

Green grass tickling my feet,
hard soled heavy shoes
forgot, now tossed.

I bent knees, hips, torso straight, so low,
just to jump as high as I can,
so high I needn’t land.
