"There's not much doubt in any of our minds that no complete idea springs fully formed from our brow,
needing only a handshake and a signature on the contract to send it off into the world to make twenty-five billion dollars.
The germ of the idea grows slowly..." - Walt Kelly

The bite is definitely worse

My writing is scarce lately. I'm thinking about forming an exploratory committee to consider the possibility of maybe pioneering a tentative expedition into uncharted lands to find more.

from Emil Kozak

Here we are,
where we've
always been.

Can't say
we blame you.
We would be too,
if we weren't
the ones
in charge.

Even when
light splits
the dark haze
and our reward
rests quietly
in the palm
of his hand,
is it the
sweet draw
of the carrot,
or are we
chased still
by the sharp,
phantom sting
of the stick?

Flashlight off;
back to dark,
back to basics.
