Never did cartwheels
I never did cartwheels as a kid.
Too afraid to graze my hands or bang
my head on the ground. Wouldn’t even
try it on grass. And now here you are,
buggering up your neatly combed fringe
by tumbling around on the carpet.
Showing me how brave I must’ve been
to let you turn my world upside down.
