jarred out of reality and into a memory
Tactile Prowess

With kids milling
around, I'm struck
by thoughts of you
like an oncoming truck,
and dazed, both
delirious and rattled
by pangs of what-if
with which I'm saddled
and mounted and ridden
like a carnival pony
'til the party moves on
and I don't feel phony -
just used, abandoned,
and rather out of touch -
not that tactile prowess counts
