A Narrow Escape - Poem by Brandon Adamson

a breakup is like a narrow escape
the more tragic the loss
the more better off
the narrower the
the escape
from marriage
the ordinary simple life
and death.
a passionate love affair
is one thing
settling down
is always settling
for a life less interesting
search and avoid love
one false move
one false beat of the heart
and you're back safely on nature's assembly line
