Jumpers

by John Cabeen

Frankie and Johnny were jumpers. Johnny taught Frankie to skydive. Frankie taught Johnny to love. They were at the drop zone every weekend. Last Friday Johnny woke up and Frankie was gone. Johnny made one more skydive; he never pulled his ripcord.

6S

John Cabeen, who authored A Smile, jots down thoughts, and flew many skydivers in the past.

As low as this one did go, you flew the writing sky*high. It had jive and poignancy all in the same flight-pattern. My humble congraditude. ~ Absolutely*Kate
