Nothing goes as you would expect it to.
Things go wrong, things go better,
but nothing goes right.
That isn’t how the world works.
A perfectly innocent crime,
say, a few hushed words to a ‘friend’,
can leave you both handcuffed to the
remnants of your friendship.
Jokily spoken, words drifted out
and intended to be forgotten
are pecking at the pair of you,
sharp beak breaks the bond and quick:
consumes all of you.
So far away, through the lens of a camera.
Not like you planned.
Was there a plan?
