Slipping

Giving in is easy.

Staying there is even easier.

Nothing but clouds. The world is too far away to get washed up in its worry. All my emotions are. I like them better when they are far away. It’s been so long since I’ve given in. Too long.

I walk through town. No one knows.

A pocket picked.
