stepping out Katherine Gotthardt stairs

Stepping Out

Have you ever stepped out
on that wide first step,
the landing,
the top one,
looked down like
you were on a ledge and said,
“That’s a long, steep way.
Better hold the railing”?

That’s called getting old.

We used to slide down the stairs,
butts bumping against the edges,
turning carpet into a slide,

Remember that?
It wasn’t long ago.

But now,
we call that a fall.

Too bad.
