“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


A cliff is where
I stand
Leaning slightly forward into
The dusk,
Hand outstretched and eyes open wide
A necklace clutched,
Like
A remake of the Titanic etched permanently
Into this moment,
Of a cross
And I know if I loosen my fingers it will
Drop
Into the abyss
So I
Hold on tightly,
Ex unguibus.
