One of these days
I'll walk across the wire--
I'll dance across the wire
in misfitted toeshoes while
singing at the top of my
voice no care
for whether it cracks
no thought for whether
it's sharp or flat.
I'll dance across the wire
juggling balls and balloons
and when I fall
I'll jump back up
dust the dirt off my butt
and bow to the crowd
with a flourish.
