Thrill Seeker – a poem by Emily-Sue Sloane

Thrill Seeker

The one who walks a tightrope across canyons
invites the Specter in
for tea
and
conversation
His balancing pole,
arcing
toward ground,
etches
the line
between
fate
and
faith,
living
and
leaving
His quick,
delicate
steps
bounce
the wire
in an improvised
midair ballet
performed joyfully on the crescendo of silent prayer
