Garden Games

to the edge
and then cracking
in the high
of the venom
at the gates
near to heaven
all over

than has
been given
that is fair
within reach
all alone
for a moment
to laugh
at the fall

This poem originally appeared at Stephen Jarrell Williams’ poetry site Dead Snakes back in December of 2014 along with A River Between Us.
