Leeway

People who flick matches have three seconds before it catches. People who chase storms wait for the tingle in their arms that means the wind has started riding, started kicking on the ground, soon will be screaming from the skies and people who bomb buildings plan with at least 15 minutes of evacuated back-routes and cigarettes for new doubts. What I mean is, I drink tea now – I have lost black water coffee to a past that doesn’t want me to keep showing up the way I did for several stubborn years. Once you boil the tears out then the water’s not so salty. I am fully still as stubborn, only this time by not calling.
