play

sitting on the edge of the precipice

staring down into the infinite nothing;

the bottomless darkness swallowing everything

my eyes drink in no light to tell;

its just a game its all just a game

i remind myself calmly.

 

with the risk of serious injury pain loss trauma lasting

dancing playing chasing hunting fleeing

growing decaying rising falling laughing crying

giving birth taking life disease poverty ambition cruelty;

a game to study to learn to play.
