The Falling

“woman is the initiator.” joseph campbell

i am falling.
        how?

                                          p u s h e d ?              

Looking back

I trace the lines
Of my

T r a

          Je
            ct
         or
            
y

Just more questions.

I am falling
Like V.H in

Altazor

Like an  in-
itiate or a

clawing
bag
of
cats

or a

forgotten

anything.

Is the falling
an act of remembrance
of everything above
of everything before

getting farther

away?

Events

Histories

Stories of Up

Ever out of reach

Falling –
Looking up.
Longing for
that which gets
farther away

with each rapid click

of the altimeter.

Reference causes motion sickness

Close the eyes.

In the falling,
man without wings
is greater than
the angels
with their automatic
response to flight.

Freedom in falling

falling as art.

as resignation

no, too passive

Embrace the falling
the flaming parabola

trust the falling
the initiation to

surrender

as transportation
as destination.
