Abyss Edge Dreaming

And even so
The Wind from the Abyss
offers to dry my tears

I should go home
Shouldn’t stand here
on the tip of the Lip
Shouldn’t stand here
on the Edge of Infinity
Shouldn’t stand here . . .

But I tramp down the grass
Pull out the wine flask
Pull out the sandwich
and eat one of the finest lunches . . .
Ever

Where I’m from
They think me crazy
for even being here
They are so afraid of falling . . .

The Wind from the Abyss
wants to play
tugging at my clothes
like an eager dog
The Wind from the Abyss
tries to hurry me
to the edge

And I laugh
A strangely deep laugh
“Not today my friend Koya. . .
Not today . . .”

The last draft of the wine
I hurl the bottle
over the Edge
Imagine that
Polluting Infinity . . .

I gather my things
And return from whence I came . . .
