Zachary Schomburg - Falling Life

From Scary, No Scary
Zachary Schomburg


Falling Life


You are in a very high tree.

If you jump
you will live a full life
while falling.

You will get married
to a hummingbird

and raise beautiful part-
hummingbirds.

You will die of cancer
in mid-air.

I will not lie.
It will be painful.

You are a brave little boy
or girl.
