Playground Versus Bulldozer

Playground Versus Bulldozer

We take for granted
The simple pleasures
Of two legs dangling, swaying

Back and forth to push the seat
Of a swing further and faster,
Passing point of rest again

And again until the chain that holds
Stops ever so briefly
Perpendicular to the ground.

Breath held for a split second,
Then screams
Of laughter unleashed.

However one looks at it,
There is no room for a bulldozer
In this memory.  No room at all.
