I will breathe in your rarefied air
by Aqua Marine
When you said to me,
"Climb up here,  It's pollution free."
Sacred. Safe.
Your rarefied air.
Calculating, you seemed so free.
Safeguard. Sage.
I said I could breathe...
Underrated your density.
Saintly....

Six-word Couplet Series Encore
by Abdul Malik
Wedding Vows
At the altar
I did falter.

Marriage woes
Woman to woo
said, I do!

Faux Pas
As an afterthought
Upon myself brought,

Married Life
Dark ominous cloud,
I bemoan aloud.

Divorce
Fierce I battled
All debts settled;

Lesson...

it grew,

Complexity

Breaking 
free is

leaving the
animal it
must do.
Once free
