Rappel–Jeff Burt

Rappel

I have narrowed

like canyon walls

into a crevice of longing

so squeezed in

that I cannot squeeze out.

I breathe without depth

long for a sudden

loss of weight,

your forgiveness

like an endless amnesty

widening below.

Light is brief,

a single joy

that passes over.
