 the hungry suspect toils in his obvious disease. more sick than overcome.

a protracted caution to the end of the world. softly counting the future's remaining debt. 

something discarded that is never truly lost. 

unlikely protagonists in the foul histories of broken men. 

the victim wears his cuts in stubborn stains. fortified by the courage of want.

something so gentle that easily destroys us. 

the window cracks. the villain grins. 

the animals pace in their cages. 

something wholly unexpected. that we never knew how much we needed it.
