The Fields of the Unworthy

 

Shadow or spotlight
Neither promises much
Glaring truth in plain view

Chopper blades humming
Thumping looming closing
Heart valves pounding straining

RunningStumblingFallingSweatingScreamingStruggling

They finally found me
Hopes and expectations to the ether
The noose tightens quickly

All those things
I did or said or thought
Have come to fruition

My denial shattered
Foolish confidence
Outranked by reality

Fraudulence uncovered
Burning light centered

One shot.

One drop.

And the check finally cashed.
