I dreamed I jumped the canyon

Reaching out to you
I chanced to glance below me
Beheld an abyss:

River in its course
Was the cocoa-colored asp
Rocky rapids hiss,

Stones like bones await
My pitiful earthward fall
Should you choose to miss;

Emerald pinheads:
Those treetops so far below
Proving life persists;

Between us blue void;
Heart-stopped panic, not knowing
You'd return my kiss
