Descent for One Single Impression

My husband's best friend fell off a roof this morning. He's in critical condition being transported by ambulance to a decent hospital 2 hours away. He's not breathing on his own, has bleeding in his brain, and various broken bones. Please send healing thoughts his way and to whatever deity you believe in. Thanks!

Descent

The roof was metal
that you slipped
off of.

The driveway was tar
that you landed on.

What thoughts
went through your brain
as you fell

before there were no
more thoughts?

your poem captures the abrutness of the fall vividly. prayers are offered up for your friend. when prayers go up the blessings come down - more about descent there as well
