THE RUB

Escape, make quick, to some unknown
imagined destination or stand and fight
embroiled and exhausted in negotiation
physical and emotional resources depleted
death at your door, while rejuvenating
opportunities may await, or stay to recreate
again, what is lost, beyond, the world
may be worse, reticent, one runs, new guilt
cannibalistic burdens lurk or youthful waters
flood over, into the arms of dreams, green
the woods and cottage glen, new friends
at your arrival home, go forward or go back
so many things we lack, are better left alone.
