Advice From The Experts - Poem by Bill Knott

I lay down in the empty street and parked
My feet against the gutter's curb while from
The building above a bunch of gawkers perched
Along its ledges urged me don't, don't jump.

    (Advice From The Experts by Bill Knott.)

    The building above a bunch of gawkers perched
    Along its ledges urged me don't, don't jump.
    ______________________________
    **Sounds suicidal, but for those voices that cried out: Don‘t jump. Don‘t jump. Were good he took their advice.
