after the fall

she cut her tooth on the counter
when she slipped on a wet spot
and sent everything
she held dear
into flight.

and for a brief moment,
she could actually see
the days spin down
like whirly birds.

right there in front of her.

a thousand twisted memories

covering her tracks.

my goodness they passed so quickly.
violently, even.

like icy wind.

and it was during this time
that she watched
her friends
come and go.

even her best friends.

disappeared in front of her.

and
as
the
days
spun
d
o
w
n

faster and faster and faster

she began to change
into

someone unrecognizable
to herself.
