Little Creatures

“You have a trampoline?”

Of course I have a trampoline. And not one of the sissy ones with a net. A fourteen foot trampoline on a hill. I try to jump on it every day. The neighborhood kids like to come over. They laugh and jump and invent games where the elder brother is a big weasel eating his little weasel sisters.

My truest friends are the ones that will jump with me. The trampoline is a great equalizer. When we are on it, our anxieties vanish. And we are just bodies in space. Little creatures. We crash and look at the stars. We tell ghost stories and plan pranks that we won’t pull because we are too nice. It gets cold and we go inside.
