There's a line from a movie, I remember
About jumping off a bridge.
(I quote inexactly, for I believe firmly in hearsay)
"Once you jump, you have so much time.
What do you do with all that time?"

What would you do
If you knew you had 7 seconds of freefall?
Flap your arms
Scream the truth
Smirk at the birds

Just falling and falling, towards the beginning, and what do you do with all that time?

And now think of your zygote splitting and spawning at the beginning of the fall
And the heartbeats handed from one jumper to the next
pump through us like the
air under the
bridge

And we're falling and falling always towards the beginning
And what do we do with all that time?

What would you do
If you knew you had 70 years of freefall?
