Big Sudden Moves








After I came home,
my wife said
I would be okay
without any 
big, sudden moves.
I should slowly
make my way
from room to room,
avoid falling down,
always keeping track
of just how far I'd gone,
only then, maybe
call someone.
But she was never
the very best judge
of how far 
I would really go,
never able to say,
for sure,
how much
I might know.
