he set foot

he set foot on the gigantic
plinths being used as an
art exhibit (permanent
he assumed)  boulders
progressed across
huge slabs of concrete
first one just touching
next then leaning against
next then just on top
next then lying flat on top
as if home
as if resting
as if sighing
as if embracing
he thought of family
he thought of teachers
he thought of so many
he ran out of time thinking
the guard
told him to jump down
and observe the plinths
from behind the ropes
