GRAVITY vs. levity

head up derriere

GRAVITY CALLS

lands in icefall
thoughts in avalanche
when grip on slanted land is lost
surfaces tumble down
from sound or step or slip
the same result
in frozen crashes
between the thaws

there is balance
until to one side
or another
loosed grips expel
down physical
or philosophic slopes
to answer
gravitys call

________________

levity answers

consciousness bridges
over any abyss

the only true applause
is laughter that lifts

when gravity calls
it’s the retort that rules

in the darkest dull danger
levity answers with jewels
