I think for a cat cut RL it would be better to have it be over rather than under. Unless you actually hung a slack RL, then your RL would be catenary too, but they prolly wouldn't match. So I'm back to my original answer of running the RL over the tarp.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace without end to you.
