Standing

Inspiration piece

Sometimes I ponder
How we both stood on this cliff.
You jumped.
and I stood at the edge,
pondering.

I stand still
and stand,
and stand,

and jump

back two steps
falling into the hands
behind me–
back to the hands who keep me dry
and out of the mud.

I’ll come back to the edge
to stand
and
to ponder

I’ll remember you jumped.
You were graceful and messy.

    Brian, how dare you do graceful and messy?

    Julia, now we are all stuck with the truth.
