Inside Space

Messi, the weave of the body, the movement, the space is created. The crowd wonders, how did he do that, the car reverses out the drive, long low back truck body, the bicycle on the path, the cyclist ducks, weaves around the tail of the body, cycles on, as if it never happened, a second early or late, the ball is gone, or the bike is under the truck, how does it happen.

He is trying to explain to her, she is restless in the bed, always wants to control, it’s her mind, it finds hard to shut down, the medications she is on, she is also giddy, space inside, she tries to listen.

He counts the number of times he gave out the exercise prescription, almost them all, the exception being a 100 year old man who didn’t have legs.
