Title: Try to maintain
Author: Stone
Date Submitted: 1/19/2013

Poem: Here it comes, the rise, the liftoff
I''m going to try to maintain
I can''t help stuttering, slow it down

Spilled noodles in the sink
Try again
spilled noodles on the stove
Try again
Fingers into boiling water
I can''t help but laugh

But I need to try to keep from embracing the high
And taking it to the limit
Try to reel myself in
Jaw feels tight

Wish me luck...
