Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why ~ Kurt Vonnegut
powers that be
come together
as if in cahoots
catching us unawares
at our most vulnerable
and trapped in that moment
flailing rendered futile
there is nary a suggestion
of an out, only choice
being either brazen
it out, or let it ride
quietly pass over
and then you pick up
the shreds of remaining
dignity to sashay out
