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.
