a hollow hurt

did she hear a choir just after she leapt?
a hymn, a pretty progression
was she able to hear it over the air she
shot through?

what song, what sound brought her
to the bottom?

i wonder if she held her breath or
shut her eyes.
did she wish she were winged?

what wish, what woe bought her
to the bottom?

did she laugh or cry or try to whistle?
a hollow hurt after she plunged for
a lifetime.
did she cover her face before she stopped?
