There, against the wall

Against the wall
With paint lightened
By the oil of her face,
She laughed,
And her toes curled.

Teeth, white, tried
To hold in the noise,
Failing, though
She didn’t really care
And she kept scrolling.

Seemed to stay
In each frame she saw,
While, falling, the
Stars stayed outside
And her eyes closed.

A second to lose
Thoughts of there, to
Replace them with flying,
But she did,
And she became weightless.

Remembering gravity,
Sand filled her shoulders,
Though her head floated,
Bobbing to the laughter,
And reality left her.

Breath awoke her to
A moment in the present,
Passed as quickly from
Her as the second,
And she continued in the loop.
