don't settle for the mundane;

chaos is far more intriguing.

i am all
alone.

i am surrounded
by midnight shadows
and biting squalls
and thunder-gray clouds.

i am surrounded
by scorching sand
and dog bones
and empty creek beds.

but suddenly,
you are here.

and i am surrounded
by morning light
and crisp air
and mountain blue skies.

i am surrounded
by cool sheets
and kitten's claws
and tranquil streams.

and you
are here.
