P.W. Bridgman: Let Go

Image: Unsplash, downloaded ( 05.03.2023.


Slow canter:

me behind,

you hunched over the bars,


I hesitate, then let go.

One chubby leg extends:

toe lightly touches ground, just once,

balance regained.

One last wee wobble,

then you’re away

into the world

you now own.
