and as I was lying there
dizzy from the high fall
achy from the painful impact of reality
I finally learned
that I cannot avoid being dropped
but that there are those who, WHEN they accidentally drop me,
lay down with me on that cold concrete floor
look into my eyes without fear of my pain
and stay
until I’m ready to get back up on the trapeze again

but maybe you all knew that already…
