Random Poem:

a passing observation

Unstructured moments were now
more a liability than a haven.
Sometimes, unresolved inner conflicts
would erupt stealing remnants
of vigor, forcing him to knead his
sweaty forehead and turn away from us;
to search for those places without faces
where he could bury his interior in privacy.
