Favorite Quote:
There is no point in working towards something that you do not want.

Not unlike chameleons,

we pleasure ourselves in the art of cloaking
even as we constrain ourselves to the point of choking

The death of a feline whose curiosity remained
places no hold over the fabulous enigma of the item contained

Are all presents wrapped in a bow?
How far must the journey lead us to truly know?

Spending leisurely nights upon the rooftops of your city or town
clever wrapping comes undone revealing a man’s solemn frown

Far down the street walks the seemingly casual mistress
whose blindingly bright package hides pure distress

Why do we hide behind such silly design,
And act upon a fake will as if we have no spine?
