You post your story on the board
A pinned moth, still moving
You read it once and it twitches its last
Then goes still, cold, a fact of history
Another specimen in the display case
Only yours by chance and memory
Others have brighter colors
Or in life must have flown like nightmares
Wrecked cities in their day
Yours just sits impaled and dead
You move on, head filled with mothballs
And the holes keep showing up in your clothes

This is one of the best things I have read in a long time.
Straight from my heart and my mind.

Thank you for opening yourself and so accurately painting that picture.

David,

That one really hit me. I was so NOT prepared for the ending. Thanks for sharing this.

Much love,
Larry
