The Possibility of Albert

Albert’s old, frail body sits in the usual chair by the window overlooking the park, watching children play. The only discernible movement, the glimmer of a smile threatening to redress the downturn of his mouth.

Inside, legs and arms are pumping, propelling the swing ever higher, soaring freely like the young hawk he once was.
