Joy of the Fall

Anna Lissa Berger


So I jumped

off today


Like you said I should


My toes

digging into the moss up there

pushed me off

as if somehow

they had done this before


In mid air I discovered

your advice was sound


I could fly

on wings of defiance and daring

putting a great distance

between then and now


You should have told me sooner.
