The Path To The Castle

my feet sticky with mud
slipping through grass
battered by mindless stones,
in frosty light

a chase that tuned to survival
for someone believing in a
metaphorical death
of people who don't dream,
but moon-dark

brown dead leaf
under my shoeless soles
is but a confirmation
that the fall is harder
when you survive.
