vertigo

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

above
the corrugations of a retractable roof
form an illusion
of rapid
unstoppable
descent

the stadium
empty
hosts events
that make my heart race
