Cinqchain (Cinquain Chain)…I must be insane…


crushing pressures

at the centers of things

and pressure-less vacuum, there is

just this.

Just this—
this thin skin of

volition holds our hearts
within our chests and holds its beats
in check.

In check-
ered overlays
on all we see, the mind 
beats against the shadows that lie 

(We have just opened a restaurant.  
I'm averaging 16-18 hour workdays, 
and 4 hours of sleep, if I'm lucky.
None the less, I will attempt
NaPoWriMo....No guarantees....
we'll see how this goes.)
