Chess Figures

An observation of what’s always been going on

Here now
There yesterday
Still here tomorrow
Walk little figures
Tiny identical pieces
The king and the queen — the knight and the pawn
Statuses earned from free will governing us all
Usually observed together
Fighting or debating
Predicting or degrading
Calculating or promising
Compromising or constructing
Certain structures and beliefs
All sharing the same feature
All invisible in nature…



Dirty realism, grunge lit, creative confessions, spec fic, and assorted literary atrocities.
