“Move Away From The Last One”

~ Dialogue with ‘Freckles’ ~

she stated, thoughtfully.
“I can’t see you there?”
I replied, curious by the admission.
“I was Hunting… Baiting Traps…
getting ‘Him’ to lower Walls,

“Oh, I see…”
“I grow Colder with each Victory
… Justice is Giddying in its Evenness.”
“You’re Participating, not Learning…”

… I’ve witnessed you [Deliberately]
walk into a waiting Shooting Gallery…
to get Triggered and Heal Anger Issues
… and, although they smiled at first…
they were unaware of your Uplevelling.”
