procedure

love is more of a procedure than an event; an event suggests luck as its catalyst, procedure suggests careful details in service of a result.

lodge

i could see them approaching through the windows, dusty and distorted in their age, and tightened my grip on the smooth wood of my chair. so soft under my fingers, i wondered how the leaders before myself handled this coming meeting. their palms sweaty, nervously running their hands back and forth on the wood, finding it much harder to breathe from a tightened chest. had they all taken it this seriously? surely i was a blink away from losing consciousness. i could already see the intruding black dots form in the corner of my eyes. i took a deep breathe. i had to compose myself. this day was inevitable and i knew that. but just another week? couldn’t i have been given that? my title meant so much to me, i was terrified to give it away. they were coming through the door now and i managed a smile. as much as i wanted to cling, i knew i had to let go. my turn was up. it was time to let go regardless of how much i did not want to. they were all seated now, looking at me expectantly, already a number of them with foggy eyes. i had done my job and all i could hope was that my successor would hold the title as seriously i did. i opened my notebook and began my speech.

mutual

i looked up at him steadily, wondering whether or not the jitters, the butterflies, the nights of unclosing eyes and a wandering mind were all just pieces of my transcendental imagination, or if it was indeed a feeling mutually met.

trees

the trees sway back and forth in the incessant wind. its dark, and i can barely see, but the wind’s cries echo throughout the house. i look down. i’m not wearing shoes. so i open the door and sprint across the wet grass until i am swallowed by darkness.
