paper sails propel empty boats. barking shadows. menace the dark. until it rains again.

the truth is patient. it waits us out.

time is delicate. it tears too easily. foil princes loyal to the fickle science. of hungry wolves. her eyes a flush of contrition. as she measures the missing years.

the monster misses. ribbons and onion skin. trace the past. the jump ropes of slaves. the choices. she's stolen. empty boxes.

enchanted by the rain. seduced by the thunder. a far away storm that pretends to be close.
