The games

Unresponsive,
where’s the trigger?
light becoming smaller
and the darkness, so much
bigger than we ever thought
was possible.

We’ll get through it,
but which way and
how to move on is
the question?

slowly,
inexorably
melting into the new
territory

are we pioneers
or mere spectators
taking seats
in the arena?
