Inspired by the film The Fall. You can watch the trailer here: The Fall trailer
Why are you making everybody die?
The mystic departs this mortal coil,
sparrows flying from his mouth.
The green silks of the Indian flutter
as he falls from a great height.
The heart of Darwin, pierced
by an enemy’s bullet,
avoids the bed of arrows,
final resting place of the ex-slave.
Our explosives expert extracts
a thousand men from the clutches of life.
But the bandit is saved by his falling
into the arms of his daughter.
She has taken charge of the tale
and put an end to death.
No blood, no drowning,
no morphine can end this story
As soon as you share your life,
the narrative thread,
you lose control of it.
Like dervishes spinning,
their alabaster satin skirts
reaching out in every direction,
so too your life whirls away,
surrendered to fate and the divine,
careening onward to the next scene.
