They have removed the chains

From the End of the World.

How’s your balance now?

How close to the

Sharp edges will

You dare to walk?


Last book I read

Said God was a rabbit;

Where can you put

Your trust?


Lady of Spirit

At the end of the world,

We paused, breathing hard –

The lady of spirit  –

She helped me float,

I helped her climb –

And I. We looked

Across the lovely, dry rocks

That came from the

Words of God.


(For Deborah)/Petra, Jordan
