Through puffed up cheeks she exhales-
the thudding reverberates-
tremors that linger millenia after the earthquake has passed-
then the lilt, and tilt- upside down
she hits bottom, stares at the length of him, then down

then a burning starts, a buzz blowing her deaf
her mind’s eye locks on the tender parting of dry leaves caressed by a sunny breeze
