Bad Decisions

An inexperienced rafter, I find myself

Racing down an un-runnable river-

Narrow passages, big waves, twists and spins

My heart racing with each maneuver. 

I’m drunk, laughing, proud to be reckless

Fully vested in the adventure; and then

An unavoidable rock

My body tenses, bracing for impact

And I wish I were sober, or had

Brought a life vest because there’s no way

To jump out and swim to shore.
