Free Fall


It’s getting to the point

when I’m going to cut away

and free fall

for a little while.

Just enough that I can feel


pulling me into its embrace.

A kind of gravity.


With all of this

hope and good support,

I have been saved.

Kept high

and alive

by science.


 it’s time for me

to know my nature.


So let me cut the tethers,

untie the lines.

I’m just drifting off

on a noon breeze.

Caught in a thermal.

Where will it take me?



know that you didn’t

lose me,

I escaped

through your fingers

like water

and fell
