Some tiny creature, mad with wrath,

Is coming nearer on the path.

Stepping Out

How easily I forget
each time the old bell clinks
the red light flickers
and the door opens
that in accepting
its invitation
I step out over
an inky abyss
three-hundred feet


protected from a rapid descent
and contorted end
by a few inches of something

maybe steel?
