With an assassin’s thousand-yard stare
short grays dancing in the dim light
inspire an exasperated reflection.
Beckoning the question;
Words vs. Deeds
scantily dressed in possibility
float out of reach,
helium filled word bubbles
in a comic strip
dissipate in regret. Watering the
growing deterioration of forward progress,
the grateful exhale of
life lived in recovery
Words vs Deeds.
