O-C Tendencies.

We never
feel safe,
never feel secure.

Greatest comfort
available
is found in the sphere
of the familiar.

Well-worn paths
worn into a maze
that swallows

us just like your run-
of-the-mill
three-dimensional
black hole.

Our most immediate
weaponry?

Being awake
and alert.
Remembering.
Documenting.

Seeing it
in the fucking first place.

Maybe you cannot stop
it, cannot win
this war:
at least

you saw
it coming before
it won
the game
you lost.

That must
count for something.
