Day 138 – defender yields for the day

Day 138
5:20 pm – 5:37 pm

defender yields for the day

too comfortable
between clean sheets
at seven in the morning
for the alarm
to ring

she wishes
to celebrate
by remaining

fie for the world
calling upon her
yet again
to court
others battles

but she wields
to break
for more than
triumph and scuffle
at the point
before the corner
just beyond
what she
is assigned to defend

so she concurs
she shall return
soon enough to the
of her journey

smiling as she
lovely within
all that feels bleak
