Now is the time for twilight. Now is the time for the mincing of words. Now is a day of embellishment. I’m breathing recirculated air, trying to breathe in happenstance.

Yearning and repulsion. If one outweighs the other, the organism will wallow. This was not going as planned.
Dinner was overcooked. Words were minced. Wine uncorked, but still breathing in the recirculated air.
It’s been like this for weeks now.
