The suicide crime scene

Our feet patter a dusty tune
Edinburgh traffic plumes
One good eye surveys the scene.

Suddenly – a flash of yellow
Dashes across blurred vision
Police line - do not cross.

Curiosity beats a steady rhythm
We weave through traffic
Feel the shame of indiscretion.

Once at the tall railings
You hoist me up to look
I feel cold metal chafe my hands.

Peeking over, I gasp at the drop
gazing down at the street below
A screen obscures the view.

“Please get down from there!”
I drop down, grab your hand
We run away like naughty children.
