orange jello

to be suspended weightless in orange jello superbly safe from hurtful words escaping or crushing emotion infiltrating joyfully buoyant peacefully excluded oh to be trapped in such a numb existence as orange jello might provide

a writer’s dilemma

absorbed within a story intruder behind the curtain too far in to find escape unable to pull myself out I climb ever further in until I am nothing more than the teller of the narrative my own story shrinking into oblivion no longer relevant so that this person's story can come to life
