The Line

For the hoppin’ mad this evening

Step right up!  But do not cross

If you do, it’s jail

Do not pass GO.  Do not collect $200


Instead breathe.

Try to, anyway.

This too shall pass.

In the moment – what horseshit.

But it will.

The alternative is clear.

On the other side of that line is jail.



*** CNF, as it relates to personal matters, can be tough, and can drum up things in you that you did not expect to still be there.  Things like sadness, pain or anger, where you thought there was closure and peace.

This was born along side a tough piece of Creative Non-Fiction I wrote recently.
