Free Write Friday! Falling

The prompt: “We started dying before the snow, and like the snow, we continued to fall.” — Louise Erdrich, Tracks

The attempt:



We are burning bridges And sinking ships And fallen towers

We are crashing cars And trains derailing And branches breaking

We are slipping knots And broken doorknobs And leaky faucets

Everything we do is wrong Even what is right We are never blending

Always shifting Always changing Minds and directions

We are a map Torn in half Only missing the piece we need

We are missing the peace we need Fighting in the name of freedom What is freedom?

We fall Like snowflakes Hoping we don’t melt before we hit the ground

Hoping we don’t melt once we’ve hit the ground We are falling We are all falling.
