Slate & Gunmetal


Ocean
    
I thirst.
I only see sand.

Masquerade
    
Costumes can't hide him. Hide her.

New Shoes
    
Calloused feet yearn to-be broken in.

Carousel
    
Lobsters and eagles haunt her dreams.

Beginning or End?
    
Sharp intake of breath.
Then silence.

Breaking in a new writing notebook. 6-word stories work the best. (Title is shades of gray -- but only two.)
