Troika Triptych


I don’t mean to be
cryptic. Give me earth,
wind, fire.

This isn’t a triathlon,
Love. You can run
but you can’t

(swim, bike)
hide. Please, just go
and ro sham beaux

your way back to this
third marble
from the sun.

    Just love the way you played with three here, every little nugget a charm in itself, all on a triple bracelet, dangling ion the wrist of the cosmos with magic and fire and even the realty of sweat. Thanks so much for joining in this exercise in triple vision, DE.
