Tightrope walkers

keep practicing

at odd gardens

and between park trees.

While watching them

trying and teaching

and practicing; having fun –

rasta hair, lively smiles,

reggaetón on the blast –

I cannot help but wonder,

do they really know

what it means to be

‘hanging by a thread’?

Walking through life

as funambule?
