You can pin me down
But shattered scales will be all that is left

"- Too bright the man -"

Met an overly confident man today-
he was bleeding profusely from the nose;
at his feet was strewn a life times
collection of bravado;
added little- by little- by little,
tiny victories accumulated whimsically
in the blue of youth
and hoisted aloft,

beside him stood an old-ish man; "unbleeding"-
light brown and unashamedly humble.

— The End —
