Day 239 – Heading Up the Pier

When I started I was heading up the pier
with blinders on, I was always gonna
walk straight up to the edge and then
jump off, it was never in my plan to let
vacationers steer me off course.

But people-watching turned and now
they’re watching me, people who
do not know don’t want me to jump
while I dream of sinking below their eyes,
while my dreams are filled with their cries
of anxious warning and greedy rage
mixing in with the gulls.
