Far down the road (Day 864)

to give away a maw of maple thoughts 

trees cringeing  sagging 

droplets pooled and sweet  tremble  

break free  shimmering  dissolve

their ruby depths impossible 

to plumb  lodged beneath the skin  

festering in privacy   we all enjoy 

a taste of seeping poison now and then 

after the sugar-shock of disbelief  

at how our story ends  far down the road   

the first bright stab already growing dull
