i’m not in a position to judge

7 Jun

i’m not in a position to judge

for i hang suspended from a sycamore tree

planted atop a tower

my glasses tumbled from my face

and my arms ache

the wind is strong and the dust in the air

makes it difficult to breathe

to each side, right and left

my vision is blocked by dark impenetrable walls

far below i hear screams

and the pretty dancing lights of the ambulances

and the police

but up here there is only a painful kind of patience

a difficult position to be in

and not a position from which i can make

an accurate assessment

i’m not in a position to judge
