Edge of Humanity

by Scott Utley

I walk briskly at first

Shuffling sacred boulders between each foot

I teeter at the edge of humanity

On the lips of this cup

Brimming over with exquisite insanity

This wonderful world

A miraculous mathematical equation

And all the earth’s treasures

Are scattered before me

I skirt the precipice

Of this crater we call

The ring of fire

Up and over the Bering strait

South west down into the east

Down under and up

And over again

Jump I jump

A high dive


Into the heart of this world

I am a skimming stone

On a great pond we call

The ring of fire
