Curious Final Thoughts

plummeting from the cliff

at daybreak

i see myself


reflected in the shallow pool that

breaks my fall

the rocks appear rather jagged from this height


proliferating many a ponderous


wicked thought


as to whether i will feel their

innumerable


barbed teeth


sink into my plushy flesh

my slow descent allows for a fair amount

of humorous


though-be-it dark


images to play out in my head

exploding

a plump tomato
tossed against the glass table below


rattling like so many pumpkin seeds in a coffee can


as my entrails are forced through my mouth

like toothpaste


at the slightest pressure ‘neath the thumb of fate

laughter may truly make you lighter


as i could swear i’m falling in slow motion


flying with the many-winged beasts of this forest landscape


watching the northern pike beneath me in the midst of spawning

i am glad they will be able to eat so heartily

as i have so many times upon their flaking flesh


upon my own


it is a shame they be deprived cornmeal and heat


which allows for such robust flavor


but i’m sure they won’t mind much

perhaps, time permitting, i will become another stone to line the stream


bones polished by the silt and flow of a river alive

or maybe


a stalking hunter will find me afloat in kool-aid rapids


planting me at home
in the city
