"Finding is losing something else. I think about, perhaps even mourn, what I lost to find this." -- Richard Brautigan

Her breath came quick
and her lungs pulled in sharp gasps
of frigid air that seemed to
to crack and splinter the cage of her ribs.
She did not know what she was running from,
nor where she would find herself,
but the pounding of her heart
pumping blood past her ears
was louder than rhyme or reason
and so she ran.
