Photograph by RV John



I run along a road.
Shadows rise up.
I welcome the cold.
Envelope me in
tendrils of vapor.
Find my lips –
taste the bitterness
of cruel words
I’ve ingested.
Wrap me in
a cloak of haze.
Dim my thoughts
of gracious days.
Let the fog hover
over me like
a nebulous lover.
Sighing, I disappear
into the misty air.
