Cannon

If you're up for it,
I see us being shot out of a cannon together.
Not the same cannon
but two side by side.
After the initial flurry and shock of being airborne,
we could hold hands
in flight
and make bets on the distance we'd travel,
before we run out of momentum.
Giggling, tumbling, grazing skin, coming to a halt,
catching breath
before saying
"Again, again!"
If you're up for it.

* as always and again, you write things i wish i could have. feels like i've just seen a movie, one of those where i leave the theatre, wishing i had a crush.

thanks so much jane. i know that post movie feeling! that's one of my favourite things in the world. i'm very flattered that my simple words could create such a feeling.
