The Fall 2




I'll tell you what behavior constitutes a Fall,
the perversity of denying the world, the all,
because it is too uncertain and too brief,
of refusing to take what good's mixed with the grief.
You may feel that there's too little for you in this universe,
but to cease to be, to see, to do, is infinitely worse.
