I like to walk up stairs on my
Tiptoes and pretend I am a
Mountain goat finding nonexistent
Footholds on a mountainside.
I like to climb stairs flat footed with
My heels hanging off the edge.
My steps have a rebound, going
Down to bounce back up. It’s a nice
I like walking down stairs with my
Toes, likewise, over the edge. It
Feels as if I am tip toeing, except,
Strangely in reverse.
I do not like putting my foot
Completely, securely, on the step.
It feels like walking normally, only
So much harder.
