Living on the Edge



It’s hard to live on the edge

of a razor; balancing

barbed blades with band-aids becomes

an act even daredevils

blanch at. So when they found her

hoisted on her own petard,

split too many ways (like the

fair magician’s assistant

at the headlining show) no

one wasted their energy

by exhibiting surprise.

    Hmm … maybe that’s not a good place to live:)

    Here’s me going off in another direction…..but this makes me think of the little snails crawling over razor sharp eggshells…that we put in our gardens to destroy them. As if….we do…destroy them!

  5. I think I should lift my champagne glass and cheer! Faithfully Debbie ๐Ÿ™‚
