The Law of Gravity

They parachuted
without parachutes,
went hang-gliding
without frames;
they knew that they
that they could not
could not refute Newton’s theorems
on the effects of gravity
on a body descending;
sky-diving with too little altitude
toward an inattentive crowd,
busy scurrying,
too large too large,
to even comprehend
what those dots were
and what they were doing
coming ever closer to those
staring back at ,
now deserted office blocks,
where down darkened hallways
telephones are still ringing,
forever.
