Poised on the Edge of a Needle

poised on the edge of a needle

I remember it is a point

and part of me asks another

is a point a kind of edge?

I tell myself I’ll ask Michael

He’s been having a difficult year

His nearest betrayed him and he might enjoy

the opportunity to be clear

In my world edges and points are similar

Because they can both break the skin…


below the waves there’s no one here

but afraid  we’re still afraid

though joy breaks through like a needle

and clarity cuts

like a pin
