The Reason: A Short Fright

So, I’m out on the balcony thinking about the fallout that didn’t happen, the shoes that never dropped creating a collective thunder. I made the announcement several times in varying ways, and those who had done so before me talked about the negative reactions, the disownment, the pleas to come home, just believe. For me there was a gesture or two, an open door, but other than that, it was just like the sounds from this balcony…crickets chirping…nothing. I wonder why, and the sole answer, the only one that makes any sense, arrives with the breeze in a soft whisper…


…they don’t really believe it, either…



Happy Halloween, everybody.
