On the grounds before a river near the road beside a lake, sits the car behind a barn that drove us to our summer place. Inside the car a seat that sits a kid and with him mom, who plugs a lighter in and cracks the window with a yawn.

With every breath we give each other space. With every beat our hearts hear, the whispered touch of color that for us seconds wait. ‘I could have been…’ ‘I should have done…’ ‘I would have had…’ These tricks we play on each other.

The further you have come within these lessons the longer it takes you to look. You see the feeling I’ve relayed, fought the urge to turn away from understanding that in all of us lay the necassary yet frightening prospects of violence, anger, rage and deciet.

Seeking this is like looking for a penny, soon enough one will blink from exsistance. All that will be left is a pool of twos. Where everything and everyone are juxtaposisions of everything and everyone else. If not already.
What is the world without a 2?
This is the share. Be willing to pass a bit of yourself to others. They deserve it. You will gain from it. The world may keep spinning.
