Shot through | Species with delicate wings | Forced by blizzard | to take a late flight | I met you

Quick to anger | easy to war | Uneasy days | in the glass showrooms | of TVs and phones | Small doses | of antidote kisses | shall we | kid ourselves | we escape | the malaise? | Taking a kinder path | while we still can | Soldiers | watch over us | In the shop, choosing fridges | Shells on the beach | You don’t mind I’m | washed up | What is coming? | Is it enough? | All? | Just | holding back?…
