Over the Edge

Tops of fench posts
Spring Valley Wildlife Area
Ohio

She always said she just needed something to take the edge off.
Who knew that emery board called life,
so coarse in texture,
could grind her down
to the bitter end.
It happened one night when her edges seemed particularly rough
with every directional pull
replaying and repeating.
She smoothed herself away
to nothing.
