the trust fall

by delapruch

they were having trouble in their marriage
so they both decided to go to a counselor &
he suggested a retreat,
so they both cleared their schedules &
in the attempt to preserve whatever was left,
they both made their way to the center
buried out in the middle of the Vermont
sitting in that circle seen in every romantic comedy
portraying something of the same
the two struggling individuals,
whose love for each other & mutual attraction
has gone the way of the dinosaurs,
go through the motions.

the trust fall comes,
as an angry bat would fly from “hell”
if there was such a ridiculous place,
and the couple in question gets up as those who had gone before them
with gushing dimples &
hugs, come to some kind of realization
that they still trust each other &
that this exercise alone has proved it.

turning around & facing away from her/his partner
said individual closes their eyes &
waits a moment, crossing their arms over their chest
as their partner makes their way a few feet behind them
holding arms out
ready to catch them.

as the master of these ceremonies sounds the verbal gun,
the partner falling, with eyes closed, lets their body drop backwards
into what they secretly believe will be the loving arms of their

simultaneous with the sounding of the verbal gun came a quick glance over
at another’s spouse,
apparently they were stretching & exposing themselves to
desire on behalf of the partner who was supposed to be paying attention to catching
the person in front of them, now falling.

and so while one partner was thinking about how they might get in the pants of
the spouse of some other gal/guy now stretching,
their partner fell towards them & with nothing to stop the fall,
came crashing down backwards, their head hitting the glossed dance floor first---
the way their head hit the floor sent their body reeling into convulsions &
they were carried off by medics to the hospital
the trust fall exercise was canceled for the rest of the retreat.
