frozen river crossing when pissed

I'm on a dare!

one foot testing cautiously

then the other

I'm standing on the iced crust

there is a dark churning beneath the glassy plating

but hey! who gives a fuck!?

Come back here! a voice rings out from behind.Too late

I'm a couple of metres out now and the dare must continue

despite the creaking,despite the signs of fracture

or my knowing that at any moment

there could be an opening up

tipping me into a black hole of water

 

come back here! the voice repeats

but the rigidity assures and the cheering boozey crowd on the opposite bank

are egging me on all the more

yeah! I can do this!

 

though my intoxication has helped me win the bet

tomorrow will find me reeling

from my stupid stupored mockery of death.
