Standing near the top of the slide watching the water pump in
the plastic shakes as the line gets shorter
and a while blowing at short intervals is the constant.
I want to race down it
I want to surf down the thing and explode into the pool below
I want to see the water spray from my body
and I want to line up to do it again.
And each whistle is a little further between
and each shake of the slide seems a little slower
and I can feel every ounce of water pump into that slide
like concussive blasts
rattling around
in my head.
