QUANTUM LEAP

Previously published in "Diverse City".



My energy levels are strange
I can do nothing and yet
I feel I ought to spin the world on my finger
Where do I go from here?

"Jump", I hear.
"JUMP !!", I hear again
I'm so startled I jump without thinking
3-G's hit me and I hear a crush
I land

I love it here
Just as I am beginning to think
Everyone understands
I feel daggers in my back
Lotsadaggers
Friend and foe alike have chosen
To wound me

For forty years I have turned around
And offered my jugular as well
This time around I will keep on keeping on
If you want to be my friend
Jump
