Exercise 190704

Each quip, each quote,

each citing misanthropy,

bears a resemblance

to something I knew

once but now which

glimmers on the fringes

of my awareness

like spectral images

in peripheral mode,

glancing by in sudden

flight as if chased

by some other dark

shadow even more menacing

and frightening somehow. But

it’s fleeting so there

is no long-lasting

damage done. And each

expenditure is just another

cycle, another common event.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
