Know Where the Ledge Is

To never fall, one must lay down 
as flat as possible, where erosion
cannot happen, according to the 
predictions of every reinsurance

professional actuary, hiding behind
a wall of rectangles and percentages
and five hundred year event horizons
which you might lay your bets upon

were you a billion air freight:
box with the shallow way your 
flight is weighed down, 
the suggestion that birds might

be so light and yet still fly,
would make your grounded
confidence tremble and
reject every premise of 
hollow bones and brilliant feathers.
