the Edge of the End
by Stephen Jarrell Williams
dark and falling
finding others deeper
down the hole
catacombs into caverns
near blind opening her eyes
Janna of a thousand years
this side of hell
I pretend not to hear
snuggling into her arms and legs
her cold flesh soothing my fever
as she readies me for the end
a deeper fall from the last edge to the pit.
