Night walking: Part 2 Flipside

Night Walking Part 2 (Flipside) In a rush I leave the house I don’t remember leaving Or why I was in a rush, I remember feeling too close, too trapped Needing to- the word is on the tip of my tongue I want to flee…

What Are the Chances?

(for hour 23—a “hearing” prompt from hour 16…coz cheese is good, but I wasn’t feeling it)   What Are the Chances?   Amid a crowded amphitheater I become the only attendee The only fan For I close my eyes to the swell of the synthesizer…
