I came back into the bedroom once and he was doing a headstand in the middle of my bed, him and his beautiful hands, till his legs wobbled and he fell. So I tried, too, mostly naked I think, at least I remember him tapping my bare stomach as I balanced upside down, toes pointed victorious. And then I crashed and twisted my neck in the falling so badly that even now, years later, I wake some mornings and can't turn my head to the left for days.
I don't mind so much. It was a good try.
