Tumbling - Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

there remain places here,
where tumbling rock slides
have rolled down
to spill over my edge.

I wonder if these sudden avalanches
might startle the stars?

the notion of stars
whirring off
in all directions,
like a frightened cover of birds,
is amusing, only because
the indifference of them
irritates me.

if only they could be held.
their skin would be as soft
as moonlight.
