no innocent soul
has any business
to be in discussions
with suicide

jolly rancher crunch \’n chew

it really is quite
a pointless way
to travel
to the ethereal

everyday we humans
navigate our intimate
tightrope sometimes
over niagara falls, other
times thigh high grass
and always inside
of a regal circus
tent — at times cerebral 
and others not 

there are days
when your feet
are solidly
upon terra firma

if this piece sounds
idyllic — similar
to the life of a puppy
or balloon

but quite
accurate — as there
is darkness of course
there must be balance
in order to comprehend
the philosophy behind
the light
