when only a sharp edge will do ........

I have no need of extraneous gifts,
With what I have, is all I need to exist,
Pared to the bone,
Ready and alone.

Straddle an electric fence,
Cliff sit,
Sit entranced on the edge of the living,
A pure existence stark but vivid,
Alive with honesty of the moment,
A searing stamp on minds eye, when only the best will do.

View that shooting star resplendent but indolent,
Not bothering to fly far,
Content to entertain a few,
Those lucky enough to be in the know.

When it comes to living ,edge is best,
Dangle your legs,
Peer into the abyss,
Stare hard enough and discover what’s amiss.

when only a sharp edge will do ........

Artist's Description

Had a particulary bad week at work and it has tweaked my head bad enough to send me into that brown bag of past work(it lives under the desk)
This was written in 2002 and I liked it then. Funny how when you need something you know where to go to get it , when needed.
I needed this now. (back into the bag it goes though til next time)
