the ball…

i threw a ball at the wall
it bounced back to me
i threw a ball on the ground
it bounced up and down…


i threw it one more time
in a manner away from me
it bounced so many times
’till they were small and low
 away it rolled as speed slowed down
 slowly and slowly like a sloth
as it zeroed its rate of motion
gravity sucked it down and stopped…
