ACROPHOBIA by John Tustin

Posted in John Tustin with tags on January 23, 2011 by Scot

all these years
I have had a fear of heights.
but only if out in the open,
like on a roof.

and today,
I stood out on an angled
roof

clinging like a vine
onto the chimney

my heart audible
in my ears

hardly able to do
what I needed
to do

and I realized
my fear was not
that I would fall

but in that
distracting desire
to jump.
