Safely Inside

—————

Encircled in bands

of sharpened steel….

Disguised in the form

of warped wood…

every day travelers

walked past the

shape of two innocent posts,

never realizing

the spiralling energy contained

within…

Taking photos…

Posing…

Always one step

from the abyss

that grinned deep inside…

Looser the bands have

grown over the years…

and still the sheep have

come…

Touching…

Caressing…

and gaining comfort…

But,

this lesson of taking

may have a bitter end,

for all those who didn’t

realize…

that occasionally…

something must be given

back…

as well…
