Roof shot




I see the shadow of you
on the ground below
leaning over
the edge of the roof
as if waiting to leap
outstretched,
clicking off one last
photograph
before the air takes you
down to the ground,
but you don’t fall,
the night air swirls
the shadows shift,
and here I am
with the image
firmly fixed in my head
your shadow
showing on the ground below
but it is me falling
not you.

(2012)
