IT IS WISER JUST TO STAY THE HELL OUT OF THE GLASS
Standing on the rim of a crystal glass half full
I know if I jump I cannot win.
If the escape velocity
of my fall through the empty portion reaches X
when I hit the full portion
it will be as if I landed on concrete.
If I make a seamless entry into the full portion
I will drown having no velocity for escape.
My mind is not made up yet
between death and death
so I think I will simply spit on my feet,
slide around the rim and make the glass sing to me.
