He sat with has back to the river.
If you walked by, you might have had to shiver:
Because he sat at the edge of civilization.
If he fell: he would be gone from your imagination.
The river roared behind him
And the concrete world, on the rim,
Looked safe: but it was cage.
He knew that in this day and age:
The edge of society was the safest place to be.
Where nature meets concrete it’s there you’re free.
