The thief. Nimble fingers on the seam. As it splits. The vagaries of choice erupting. In a fountain of consequence.

Blue lights. Drunken tulips. Struggle against the zen. an empty garden. no apples anywhere.

the layers. cautions to the castle. a mockingbird on the ledge. the echo of an old song dissecting its beak. not enough monsters. too many men. humanity's grip tightens around her neck.

thin stews steal the lie from off her lips. a pause of breath to measure her panic.

a treason of touch traces her silhouette. Until only the idea remains. The plague of want. Arrogant with rebellion.
