of sun-filled promises and

homeless camps can be found

with skill tests on low-rise balance beams

or equilibrium games on head-high rope walks

though sometimes it can get scary

when I find myself standing on the

tallest point in a forest of thorns

while following the fragrance

of a hidden rose
