“Hello, kitty” – Burgos Circle, 29 January 2016

walking through

dim-lit

streets

lurking in

shadows

on silent

feet

eyes open

every nerve

taut

on edge

ears keen

picking up

the first

sign

of trouble.

 

but i

am distracted;

thoughts all

jumbled

in my

head;

relying on

instinct

a wing

a prayer

to get

through

the night

the weary

journey home.

 

i breathe

deep;

collecting

scattered

thoughts,

pulling all

nerves

into place

and go

on my

way.
