Dodging A Bullet

The family standing around me

Must have thought I’d snuffed it

Like the stiff and comatose Norwegian Blue.

The room spun like a child’s top.

I dropped like a brick

Bouncing my head like a leaden balloon

From the hardwood.

I’m told that I spoke during my time on the floor,

But I have no recollection.

Some time later there were EMS attendants

Preparing me for transport to the hospital.

No real harm.

Hard head.

I dodged a bullet that day

Not by skill or conscious intent,

But by sheer and utter luck.
