The future is hidden
in scarlet ribbons
embroidered flame skeins
of past choices
that refuse to decay
or stay buried
in the time capsule
of our existence.

The present steam rolls
like a train under a murky river
coaxing us towards death
looping every moment
to a point where we can
choose to begin again
From the ashes or the grave
Whether we want to or not.
