Ignoring Safety Advice

in the beginning
i remember thinking
i will never

ever board one
of those dodgy
carnival rides

circling fiestas
their steel support
posts levelled out

on rocks and pieces
of concrete rubble.
but yeh, i did.

and yeh, i do.
you change your
perspective

ignoring safety advice
you allow yourself
to become, to be

part of something
and in the letting go
something wonderful happens
