  i pretended to know. based solely on proximity. 

the jagged of now. the putrid of when. time unravelling in hysterical equations. 

i dismissed the lion's roar. presuming its hunger was the cause. 

the hunt was over. the prey was consumed. only its blood stains still asked the questions we couldn't answer. 

we tore through the distance. all ink and indifference. 

we insisted upon circumstance. even as it formally dismissed us. 

the ripe of truth still sweet on my skin. as letting go whispered my name.
