flying things instinctively know

to dry out their wings, first,

to try out their wings, & go.

 

surfacing a splendid splash,

surviving a fearful fall and crash,

take time off  to dry off &

shake off the surprise of failure.

wake up  and walk off what,

and where you are

before  you forget to prepare for it

all  to dare

the first time,  again.

If you’re about bottomed out,

How may you make & design

That   O.K.  sign?

Y’know, the one where you go

Finger & thumb, real dumb, like an O,

If the three remaining members lift

Like three tea sipping members of royalty, as if

Three members’d consider an invite

Out to a bottomed out..not a bit elite…

Stride  away  of  O.K.
