Fear of Falling

We build a fence
along the edge of a cliff
to keep us from falling
into the gorge.

But what draws us
to that sheer drop
in the first place?

Are we seeking
a better view?

Or are we looking
toward that day
when we may fly?

Falling pianos
Produce no melody, just
Harps of splintered wood.
