the view
from the edge of the cliff

is divine

as fingers scramble
to find purchase
on the tufts of brown grass

a fool’s game

feeling the earth give
with every
frantic grasp

to let go

to just freefall
into the gaping mouth
of the abyss below

better than dangling

at least in midfall
you can get accustomed
to the end
