Poems

do not fear heights

taking a cigarette out onto the balcony to jump off the building
or taking the thought of
jumping off the building
out onto the balcony to smoke a cigarette

the fifth floor is not all that high
you only die on the ground floor
however high up you live
you need not be afraid

actually, my life is going well
every day I say hello to my neighbours
on the ground floor
