Down so hard.
Conversations stop as
two feet stumble
over the kitchen floor.

Simple mistake,
not the first time--
Body seems to
float away,
when the darkness comes.

Break the news:
doctors say something's about to happen;
it's serious.

Shouldn't you be terrified,
not so full of love?
The body seems to float away,
when the darkness comes.
