p.167

I fell deep,
as deep as the darkest trench in
the sea
I fell hard,
as hard as the road beneath my feet
I fell quickly,
as quickly as a summer storm passes
I fell gracefully,
as gracefully as a ballerina dances
I fell unprepared,
as unprepared as a student on test day.

I fell.

as deep
as hard
as quickly
as gracefully
as unprepared

and I still
haven’t recovered.
