In The Moments before I Fall

I’m naked
         edging
                    t o w a r d s
                                 the precipice
                                                   flesh–
                                                     like burnt apricots

                                                               with the wild
                                                                       laughter
                                                                                  of
                                                                                 all
                                                                                the
                                                                      beautiful
                                                                         people
                                                                                  in
                                                                                the
                                                                            world

                                                                    bellowing
                                                                                  in
                                                                                my
                                                                             ears
