The Drunk

“The liminal drunk between two worlds. The first, stricken. A step off the barstool and onto a wobbling world. The vision tilts and spins, and there is realization: the approaching upset. The bad decision. The drastic change. The second, understanding. The sober reckoning of consequence. Half-remembered past performed hastily and with reckless abandon. A backwards study of life’s wreckage, and a shameful shrinking away. But the drunk brings choice: stay forever trapped in realization and regret or atone, repair what’s left, forgive transgressions and move on.”

The Fallen King

“Ascension beyond our control. The crown placed upon us by chance. There is no merit, no earning, no plan. We find ourselves tasked with maintaining a kingdom we never asked for. One simply thrust upon us by duty, history, family or time. It should be easy when we fail, yet we cringe when things fall apart. When our crown topples and we lose face. When the very kingdom we never asked for slips or crashes away, we can’t stand it, and our spirit collapses. The Fallen King knows. His gobsmacked grimace slapped across his face, he’s trapped in the moment of loss forever. But all that loss and blunder and chagrin can be momentary. We do not have to live as the king does trapped in the moment of failure forever. We can move on. And thus The Fallen King is a reminder of grace. Of letting things go. A reminder that there are people–many of us–who understand and are with you.”
