Monkey Bars

I have never been able to hold on to monkey bars for too long

Seconds pass, palms sting, I let go

But this time, there’s a current beneath me

So I stretch my fingers, try to reach, hold on tightly, cling dearly,

I cannot let go

I made it a third of the way, and yes!

there is the ache again, pounding, pleading

Just a few more

And maybe the ground will shift into view
