breathe

History Turning
on the Timing of a Breath


A party of teetering, giggling drunks
decide to stroll along a cliff edge.
But nobody falls.  What couldíve been,
wasn't.  Good news.  Very good news.

Or, not news at all.  Every day
things donít happen that mightíve:
dizzying non-events, so numerous,
buzzing like bumped nests of could bees.
