the darkness woke up


a candle that resisted

coming to light

another passage of time

that seems to speed up as it allows down

and scary as the

details all stick out

tiny steps arriving in an instant

a wall rushing at you

with the pace of a second hand

on a clock

not a word

is going to get uttered

as long as

We get this trouble understood

most moments don’t want to be out meal

and the mouse doesn’t

enjoy being the cat and mouse game

the toy that is destroyed
