I lost the moon
while focused
on stepping off
my mother’s shoe
while adults
in sandpaper
conversations
in another state
scored over
until smooth
the planned
footsteps of heroes
I had yet to know
and said ‘no’
had you told me
by god I would have
learned to walk
that instant
and launched
off the shoe
and forced a footprint
in the fine grain
they had yet
to erase
had I known
what heroes do.
