Dodging the Bullet

ominous-clouds-bandw

So far I’ve dodged the bullet

The Damoclean sword

But I know it’s coming for me.

I have its word.

 

It’s waiting in the rafters.

It’s waiting in the pews.

It has interminable patience

& that is not good news.

 

It knows my area of weakness

My Achilles heel.

It’s waiting for me to slip up.

It knows I will.

 

It will not be beaten.

It will not be assuaged.

I open the door tentatively.

It maybe in the yard.
