Umbral

But what limbs does the cliff face leave us?
 Bones unpieced
 undid themselves in the fall
 his body’s illustrious marks
 the face the features of a noble father
 everything the thud on the deep 
earth confused 
in the tumble his neck snapped 
his open head exhaled
 his brain 
 a body
 lying there
 shapeless 
In this too
 just like his father [S 1110]
