strange ferocity,
delighting in turbulence
shadowy figures
slips in and out of the cold
life in most intriguing times

Smoke & Veil

 

 

Lately, I have been feeling like I have been living in Animal Farm. I hate that damn book! I read it in my infancy. I was twelve, and it was my first year of High School. Yes, back then we started High School at 12 and finished at 17. I loved that book! That is, until my teacher busted my bubble. Class discussions opened my eyes to the fact that this book was about humans behaving very badly. To this day I remember the quote I asked the most questions about in class. “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others”. I hate that damn book!

 

smoke unfurls-
a veil of antics
hides fire
