Then one by one, a bark...Read More

It was the bottom of the ninth, two outs
We were down by one run
Bases were loaded

Premium Member The Abyss

What happens if you throw yourself at the ground and miss
Outer space is obviously the answer, in baseball, it's called a whiff
As we travel ever skyward
Soaring ceaselessly onward
Until we reach the edge and fall deep into the abyss

for my Stephen who waited downstairs,

nekkid, Ann.
Ain’t you chilly?
Sleepwalking again.
