#2,491 As if it were an easy choice

As if it were an easy choice
to walk away –
offload –
if it were a straightforward
employ of ‘A’ or ‘B’ –
days are rarer remains –
cannot plan for collapses –
offset domestic mis-haps –
all happiness tempered by
her needs
[each letting go
not planned in advance] –
walked away from shame –
a soft retreat under red eye
conditions –
a leave behind
without a full explanation –
a step off-stage from a play
without a satisfactory end
