Somewhere Deep: Go To The Edge (Part 4)

IV. Go To The Edge


A successive fall from the precipice is an undertaking

that exceeds the turning of color: a barrenness


The passage is now accompanied by knowing

So I travel downward on the memory of upward perspective


Unclothed of reciprocity, sores from the initial cascade reopen

They know about the inevitable upward climb.


Now, that there is nothing to lose

it’s free flowing verse and whatever it takes to get through it


Nothing to lose means look what you’ve started,

Look what you walked across, and look what you were a part of


Two times I hung from a fragile edge

Two times I flew willingly through the rainbow to achieve these opposing views


Two times will become three thousand

Will become looking up again and again


Landing again I am restored by recalling my intention:

Go to the edge, go somewhere deep
