Far Cry

“It’s a far cry from the weight of the world,”

The old man said

Or maybe he meant “wait”

I never ask questions but

I don’t answer them either

If quizzes are quizzical

What are tests?



I live a far cry from the edge

But I’m a frequent visitor

A weekend warrior tightrope walker

The old man keeps telling me I’m going to fall

But I never do

I dial his number with no area code

And breathe into the static
