The Edge

January 9, 2008
Cliffs and a ravine
Rocks and icy blue water
I see the people
Off the edges
Making ripples in the lake
Like pennies
In a lonely parking lot puddle

A whimsical lady
Reclines in
A neon green plastic
Lawn chair with holes
She is dressed like a nurse
Except on her head
A big straw hat
With a fake flower sits

She marks an "S"
For suicide
Next to the names
As they disappear under
The dark waves below them
And I do not understand why
I am standing on the edge too
