At The Edge Of The World - a poem

At the edge of the world

At the edge of the world
She stood
Naming all the rocks below her
Naming them for the people she loved
When they ran out
She named them for her hopes
And then her fears

At the edge of the world
She watched the waves
lovingly embracing the names
until they were drowned
and out of sight

At the edge of the world
She stood and, finally, jumped -
Knowing who would kill her
What would kill her
And why.
