she stepped off a cliff


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
