The Scroll, part 3 "Quenching"


Spiraling Consequences

So much depends on things we can't see. 
Will dips the tip and the scroll is hard like 
spring that resists and resists until it breaks. 
Because he knows the metal's  touch and color 
he sets orbits in the molecules in the spiral of the scroll
and aligns the universes that spread between.

And I wonder:
Might casual violence 
fall in every footstep
ever taken?

And then I squeeze the shutter.
