“T thought that only happened in the movies.”

Ka-thump, ka-thump, ka-thump, all the way down a set of stairs…nothing to stop my fall til I hit the landing,

bones broken…tumbling…

time slows way down post-injury.

I have the bruises (and photo-documentation) to show for it,

and time lost in healing…

a right clavicle, now “Z” shaped.

A right arm, now buzzing from infringed nerves.

It is all awe.
