Alternative Success

A difficult business

There is wax on the walls. Your clothes are torn. The street growls. Your hands are seared. Your lips are wet. Your eyes burn. There is wax on the walls. More.


Learning to forget

Your mind is a garden. The hedges smoulder. Less. Less. Gone. You have gained nothing.

Alternative Failure

The place that words go

Your mouth is a box. Your lips are a lock. Your tongue is a treasure. Open your mouth and it will be stolen. But seal your mouth and it will wither, wither. You have gained nothing.
