Lightning Climber


strings in the night
rain falls and flowers grow
like spiders on a web
she crawls up the lighting
a gymnast on her ribbons

Listen
Listen
to the snapping of the fire
against her skin
she is fire proof
and doesn't burn

There's only seconds
to reach the top
perch on a cloud
dizzy and confused
she must grab the next
flash-back
to the ground

dreams and memories
ignited
through heat
through falling
through speed
she must decide when she reaches
the bottom
if she's going to do it again
