The wind
Howls
The breath of the Figurehead
life
Blowing like the little one putting the candle flames to death
Cheeks bulbous and tarnished red
And the adolescent
Puffing out streams of murky,
rainy-day-colored smoke
Experimentation
What happened?
What the hell is going on?
Lost, gone

Tectonic plates
Known forever
crept inches
throughout my scarce years
Suddenly

Jolting
I am in the air
My life
Hung up
Between what is now
And what used to be.
Breached.
