It’s 2:30 am, pacing on the terrace:
I see me ricochet against the edge
of an open window on the fourth floor.
I feel a strange numbness: a speck of ash
scatters, the end left to fall:
tumble and swing in mid air.
There’s no spark as the stub hits the ground.
I begin each day at 7:00 am
somewhere near the spot
where the stub hit the ground.

Like this!...strong use of metaphor yet leaving the "voice" in the know with the reader left to muse of the precise relationship....ed :)

though we sometimes fantasize or visualize our insignificant demise, we still move on, hopefully to transcend its grasp on our self-perspective or sense of being ...
exceptional concept development ...

Conjures for me that surreal moment of falling exhausted into a sleep where you KNOW that the next moment you will be aware of is the live-and-wide-awake moment of starting the day's cycle all over again - very much like Peter says below.

However, I have a vivid recall of this scenario, somehow; it is so sharp - is this a redraft of an earlier exquisite gem that I can have remembered? If so, I'm amazed that my brain is so efficient on the one hand and yet fully cogniscent that your writing is of such a calibre that your images ARE indeed fully memorable. It IS a true capture of our most surreal between-conscious-states moments... xx

Wonderful piece! I often am victim of crazed night-time visions and bursts of fancy before awaking in the AM to start another day's toil.
