day 202

For my soul is full of
         troubles,
   and my life draws near to
         Sheol.  Psalm 88:3

Fret, Sweat, and
      their brother, Bother,
   keep nudging me
   closer to the edge, whispering,
'it's just a short
             step down,'
      but
you are there
building a bridge
   so we can
   cross the Pit
hand in hand.
