come too far


  come too far 

  on this wind 

  cruel and cold 

  to step back from the edge

  open up 

  when the sun comes 

  close down like a small town 

  when the dark creeps 

  the bullet's deep 

  against the bone 

  like Buddha said 

  like Jesus said

  and I can't tell up from down

- Ken Peters
