new rule

fall toward the glassblower's breath
It’s the old rule that drunks
have to argue
and get into fights.
The lover is just as bad:
he falls into a hole.
But down in that hole he finds

dropping her clothes
in the street.

falling up into the bowl of sky.

Everywhere is falling

Nothing else to do.
