the broken screw. open doors. a lifetime. a moment. small. large. immeasureable. like her skin. too touchable. her eyes. wide open. her journey interrupted.
little things. they get so large. places. to go. they make us forget where we are. soft lights. gentle monsters. and the maps they've drawn. to empty treasures.
how far we'll go. for those riches.
the hound. panting. as the moon is so kind as to pet its head. the ogre weeps. gingerbread tears. sweet as they are fleet. as they run off with his grin.
her empty bed breathes. the darkness rises and falls. like a buoy in the ocean. grown tired of swimming.
