Zip Line

Fever pummels as
carabiners clack,
and humming cables
sway magnificent in
buried branches low
and far below. Danger
is not dropping to the
ground in lieu of gliding
down. Fear is the menace
here, freezing synapses,
stopping impulses that
guide the limbs, impeding
gravity that slides the body down.

For Daily Prompt: Zip
