How to Fall Safely



Did you ever consider that life
was built on the fantasies you never


got away with living? There are reasons
for dreaming of shallow water climbing
past your shins, of nests falling between


branches; and like the necessities of heartbreak 
you will not know them until you no longer need them. 


Offer your wounds with open palms, make suffering
just a little less so. You are only one 


body hoping to make another fly.
