((( The Dare)))


In the cold of morn
Silence snuggles up close
Stillness refuels itself
And emptiness takes the wheel

Minding the wild curves?
Of lesser roads taken...

Playing russian roulette...
Behind oh so long held breaths...
Alas, turning blue waiting for you...
Remembering what you said...
'I'll be seeing you'
But don't hold your breath;

To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
