  1. you arrive.
  2. breath peers
  3. down sheer
  4. cliff
  5. walls.
  6. open the door.
  7. call it stage four.
  8. feel
  9. how
  10. you’re opened
  11. then
  12. how
  13. you’re closed.
  14. taste a gloved
  15. finger
  16. pressed to mounds.
  17. and
  18. how
  19. without sound
  20. breath wills.
  21. falls.
