 we ran with our wishes. as their weight overtook our us. we argued with the distance. infuriated that it wouldn't listen. 

contrarians with our nooses drawn in pencil. 

choice left its outlines. we struggled to fill them in. skeptics in beautiful gowns as the flood embraced its aggression.

debating with the mechanics of how. too many ways to hurt each other that we couldn't resist. 

scavengers. betrayed by every touch. 

the deceit was simple. a small series of lies compounding. 

the truth a reluctant witness. as time rests its case.
