Cliff fall

They talk of a cliff fall
& there it was a swipe of chalk
scooped out and lost

beneath the pounding waves
the natural cost of ocean
skimming shore.

I walk beneath amazed
that yesterday the gash
came clear away

& fell amongst us rubble now
where all was smooth & white before
a little like my life

when crisis calls
& I refuse to listen.
