The Arrival by Milly Davis

You stepped over the metal
And fell into the empty space.
You had just balanced across
The geometric beams to get here
And now you’re falling.
Why could you not have chosen
A different open door,
Or looked before you stepped
Over the metal and fell
Into the empty space?
As soon as you hit the bottom
You floated back up
To the open doors and across
The beams, towards the light
At the end of the corridor…
