the answer

we were waiting on the bottom of a hill
sitting there watching the remainders of a life
fall down
like the middle floors of some great skyscraper
crashing down upon itself
creating a cascading waterfall of glass and metal
whatever was there gone
creating for just this one moment
a unified marvel
moving downward
and without recourse
never quite hitting the ground

and words hung on a question
an ultimatum
that you had spoken
and I could not
as of yet
bring myself to answer
