In The Act Of Falling

Henry and Mr. Bones fall alongside Berryman,
“Where we going?” asks Mr. Bones of Henry
while a wide-eyed Henry remains speechless,

the sound of the air flowing by,
getting louder and louder.
“This don’t look good!” yells Mr. Bones

just as they go splat and flat.
Henry gets to his knees
and sees Mr. Bones crawling away,

they’re both in pain.
They look at Berryman and say,
What were you thinking?”

But Berryman ignored them,
too concerned about his own ego
to worry about his alter egos.
