Toothskin

What does it mean, he wonders, waking,
to dream so clearly of precipice, of fall;
to dream so clearly a fear of falling, of rocks,
of ledges of narrow air, no near handhold
no safety anywhere, no hope of return, no
hope.
………….And yet, somehow, in the dream,
just before he wakes, he does return;
returns unhurt, returns alive and ungrazed,
astonished; makes it back inside at last,
amazed, having avoided the great grey
inevitable zilch
………………………..just one more last time.
