Free Fall

Free Fall


He looked up.

"Oh, snap."

From flight

to grind

High joy

to base fear

So fast

So strange

the way

the best and worst of

things can be

so close

like that.

Just one snap

or step

or sneeze

or breeze

is all it takes

to take you

from the midst

of one,


to the next--

Or did you do that?

Now the Earth, She knows

the highs and lows;

they’re meant to be linked by much.

The mountain peak

knows lots of weeds

and rocks

and sand

and such
