The Quicksand

Shifting grains of sand

buffeted by waves

of contradiction

ushering in


of positions.

Fissures in self

revelatory in their revelation.

Staring down truth

that strange fruit

beckoning on the horizon

opting to

move in retrograde

towards the haze

enveloped in

those lies

that we tell


Failure is a choice – preposterously so.


oft to be delegated as

an option.
