When you start to live outside yourself, it’s all dangerous.–Ernest Hemingway (1899 – 1961)
write safe words never utter crowd out white space press a dull nib dipped in life ink pour more than enough to cover horizonless pages of sheerest all color streaming into one blinding plane as searing brave light tears through mortal like piercing angel eyes and demon death breath only faith fire shall forever drown in heavy deep black and burgundy wet that conceal truth when written over and over each other collapse cells until that you inside cannot escape
