the stadium
is empty

green playing field
grey banks of moulded plastic seating
in the upright position
at repose between events

looking down
a flight of imagination
evokes a shuddering sensation
of my falling body
at near impact
amongst the tiers below

the corrugations of a retractable roof
form an illusion
of rapid

the stadium
hosts events
that make my heart race
