Nothing to see here

 

    Death Ballad

There’s not much room
Out here on this ledge
And I am not
Foolish enough
To think I’d fly
But the jump
Seems so close now
And the fall
Like some long ago high
After dangling in branches
And stepping off curbs
This last one
Is well rehearsed
Just a step at first
Nothing more
Nothing less
But fearsome
And cowardly
All at once
I’ll be sure to wave
As down I go.
-J.R.-
