Matthew R.

Basket Races

Sitting at the top of the
Stairs, the anticipation building
Waiting with bated breath
My basket is secure
My body is secure
The slope looks treacherous
Leaning forward I get ready
To go, then
Flash....Speeding down the
Stairs, next thing I know
I'm at the bottom
Safe and sound.
