Daredevil

What is safety?
A mother’s embrace
a retirement account
a gated community?
What is danger?
Driving a car
driving a car without a seatbelt
climbing Everest?
Am I safe
if I tell you the truth
if I tell myself the truth
if I run from my old life?
If I stay in my house
lock all the doors
order pizza delivery
and watch t.v.
will I live until I’m 90?
Or will the ceaseless boredom
of fruitless activity
condemn me to an early grave?
In that case, who will find my body?

    A mother’s embrace
    a retirement account
    a gated community?

    driving a car without a seat belt
