adventurer: south point – May 10

5.10.2015

thirty foot drop to

the southernmost

point of land’s

ocean

 

terror rides on her

face. it seemed like

the thing to do,

an adventure

 

until there and the

reward risk ratio

pales. harsh rock

faces, waves,

 

next land point south

Antarctica. no lifeline

buoys, warning signs,

help.

 

an adventurer is

the person who

knows when

it is time

 

to come back out

of the cave.

 

the other guy

is called

a dead guy.

 

she turns and walks

away.

 

we tell her,

good choice.
