Getting Away

barblesstreblehook

used to be fascinated way back
like, kinda took it for granted
things actually happened
because someone was
actually interested

turns out to be the biggest
learned the hard way ‘n all
that crock of slow-cooked
crap appraised
for centuries


paying attention is the
same as being a barbless
hook for easy fish – too
rapt to see the real
prey getting away
