gravity brick

In response to ‘Gravity’:

‘Sooner or later, for each of us, gravity came calling to shackle our ankles and dreams. But, for a time, we were free’. (Jacob Sam-La Rose 2006: 22)

Awkward blue railings

practising turnvaults.

Bitter cold

black hands like tarred walkways.

Crawling backwards

to that time when we were free

transgresses the present.

Spinning in and out of…

leaping onto walls

a brick falls

as she hits the ground. she calls it a day

…for now.

Gravity can shackle only that which has mass

reminding us that all things decay

and all architectural monuments

disintegrate with time.

Ideas survive.

We will be back to play…
