I fall
entering the shadow
where reflections glisten
that place between thought and death
where dreams emerge from sleep
past and future meet
and heaven borders hell

it's the surreal space within a drop of water
not forward, into the wet density
but back
before the sound happens
moving in reverse
through my travels within the reverberation
and into the plash
