A few blocks. A few miles. A few lifetimes away. Years and years of life squeezed into a handful of moments. A handful of tears from eyes too dry to make them. Too hollow to see.

The heart’s words spoken with a harsh edge. A cruel expression without pity and without the soul of comprehension. A stray set of words let loose without a thought to the impact…

concussion…

wound…

backlash…
