what’s golden

oh how i shall miss it.

who would have thought that ten straight hours of work,
five straight days a week,
would be that much fun?
nothing can beat group five.
but maybe the feeling of satisfaction
when you make a family cry tears of joy
because they now have a master bedroom to sleep in.

#@%*

the future is anything but sure.

reach far into your mind and provide an answer
to any question you encounter.
and when all else fails:

hug the cat.

the tinkling of coins.
the shimmer of metal.
and when counted
adds to quite a hefty sum.

current thoughts: ten-i-see. small bag requirements. farsighted vision.

that poor bird

he sees a man in front of him.

he yells and shouts and waves his fists.

the other mocks him.

he tells him to leave, but the other will not budge.

he threatens the man, but he remains there.

he is furious, he punches the man right in the jaw.

blinding, inexplicable pain rushes through his fist, his arm, his body, his mind.

and the mirror shatters to pieces.

his hand is a mess of red as he is forced to walk away.

keep on goin’

she takes her first steps through the tunnel.

she does not know where she is headed

but she knows how it will end.

she cannot look back

or stray from the path set in front of her.

there are no turns in this tunnel

only straight ahead.

she just must keep going.

if she stops she will be caught

by the beast she feels behind her.

her feet fall one after the other.

they form a constant rhythm

to the beating of her resilient heart.

one-two. one-two. one-two.

her steps echo around her

throughout the giant abyss that seems neverending.

she has to keep going.

she has to reach the end of the tunnel.

she must outrun the monster.

she feels its presence closer

and closer until she feels warm breath on her neck.

her pace quickens. her heart pounds.

she is running through the darkness

searching for any sign of light.

and then she is falling.

but before she reaches the ground

she wakes up.

in her warm bed, in her heated home,

with her lovely family sleeping all around her.

she is right where she should be.

and that is where she will stay.

a critical hit!

that’s a difficult scenario. can i do anything?
