Dance on the edge of the abyss

Dance on the edge of the abyss*

Life robust bursting 
In the speck of the cerulean
Some dance heads thrown 
back laughing along the
channel in silk slippers
Over rough and sublime

Strange to others 
Who crouch in awaited attack
Filled with frenzy of defense
Never aware it is wayward they 
falling into the abyss 
they so forever fear as
they settle for still feet 
whilst all recedes unmusically 
as the tide of their life inexorably pulls 

*just returned from a few days in St. Thomas - apologies
sparse internet service - wrote these on descent back into
NY -
