Poem for Learning How to Fall. ~ Andrea Rossin


Dance alone


poignancy is the hinged moment between

revolution and healing

pitched forward on edged regret

stomach sinking into eminency


ferocity of heart and mind

laterally across the midlined field

growth’s stark light game

casting shadows from positioned repose in wait


descent like shadows quickening

death among endlessness

living heavy locked pulsations

behind the breastbone in slow-motioned accidents


horrifying before the break

seconds will have gone by

destructive stumbles crumbling

life-swept edges of once safe vistas


Love elephant and want to go steady?
