It's Been A Long Long Time
Since I've ridden a roller coaster;
Since I've fallen from a tree;
Since I've played with anything remote control,
and yet, my roommate has bought a helicopter
and flies it through the house
a few feet from the ground.
Right now he's practicing
landings on the kitchen table.
And in a week, he said, watch out--
he'll be ready, the back yard.
