Jump

The parachute means fuk all
when you decide on a
freefall
only rock bottom makes sense,

with a propensity towards
irresponsibility
where reliability goes out
through the door
what would I need a
parachute for?

It never hurts when you’re hurtling
towards a known destination
and the freefall’s too late
for procrastination,

stood by the track at your
nearest rail station
is the place that you may
want to be
