Cliffhanger

she stepped off a cliff

admittedly

but it was not

a hellbound leap

no mayhem wreaking Bonnie

guntoting with incorrigible Clyde

nor was it a defiant act

of faux-glorious self-destruction

circa Thelma and Louise

it was apropos of Looney Tunes

Wile E Coyote debacle

chasing roadrunner shaped winds

 

educated, she is adjudicated

nobody’s fool

her missteps, limbs flailing

harshly judged

and that cliff

sharply outlined

in the chalk of impaled futures

overhangs

overlies

overshadows
