We are all seven steps from infinity

Seven steps from speeding accidental bus bumper

Seven steps from saving twelve step subjugation

Seven steps from the end of the pier and high tide

Seven steps from a salving embrace

Seven steps seems like a lot

Seven steps is infinitesimal

Seven steps from a fleeting perpendicular relationship with the railroad tracks

Seven steps from a family member asking…are you ok?

Seven steps from saving your friend a seat in Hell’s waiting room

Seven steps from a friend calling at just the right time

Seven steps from a razor slicing bloody virgin wrist hymens

Seven steps from carving an all too perfect roast on Sunday

Seven steps one way
seven steps the other
fourteen chances
to remain and
enjoy the sun rising
promise over Montauk.
