a slip from the center

as the people central to our lives change

the old ones lose their place where centrifugal force is passive

they are pushed to the outer edges of the hearts

merry- go- round

holding white knuckled tight

to protect the head from hitting a ground-in- motion.

There is no fun in that.

I always choose to  play on the swings.
