fear-frosted windows
as snow sugar-sifts the street,
watching...

Why are you here?

Your familiar skin,
Radiating miscellaneous emptiness

Trembling wanton security

If you have an open

Why waste your time

On rehashing others

Have a unique take on life,

Dust dry winds that leech and parch,
Skeletal soldiers that endlessly march
