run, run, don't love, don't trust (2014)

run, run from the touch of night.
the monsters wake. the parents fight.
the smoke of fires march, march, march,
consuming the shudders of the fearful.

run, run from the giving of self.
each stolen moment drains the wealth.
don't trust. trust powers the reaching minds
to be content with the simple hum of: together.

run, run from the future, the past.
don't love. if you love it, it won't last.
be the ant, who with a broken foot continues
on a lifelong search for something sweet.
