a page turner a quick read a re-read a roller coaster a roller derby a sentimental nostalgic gun toting mind thinking emotional car chase…..whatever

raw
stripped down
bare essential.
basic underline current
which pulls you under
and gives you more
than what is seen on the surface.
simple essentials
first aid kit
survival kit without the safety of a tent.
give me a story
that draws me in
by character
surroundings
and the moment within.
a diary
morsel of words
breaking down after the fork –
aroma
of the wine
and
the candle
not
candle(s).
leaves you asking questions
but satisfied
leaving you wanting more
but thirst quenched
and belly
full. time being.
