DISTANT EARLY WARNING
(2/5/18)

falling
in love
each day
with those
far away

so much
easier
you see

to have
the concept
rather than
the reality

less
messy

no demise
by compromise

no stalking
silhouettes
in the sky

casting shadows
upon
the everyday

able
to walk
our chosen
path

without
considering
peripheral
footsteps

we feel
more complete
than more
completely
alone

just another
local
false alarm

a klaxon
fading
to echo
