Calculated Risks

in extremes

play is troublesome

whether with fire

or ending in frostbite.

direction has no inborn


about whom to hurt


accidents happens

according to

calculated risks.

Or, maybe it doesn’t sit so well

with what else was


and beyond ozone, ionosphere

to outer reaches becoming penitent

feel revenge     -hereditary-

of temptation

turned sour.


Strong in Memory

Ending does not find roots in soils of fear


Though leaves force winds

to guide

to such fields


Unrecovering from hail of seasons strong in memory.
