What if all your hard times were a long ago?

What if your scars and shames are folded in the drawer?

What if you worry a hatchet is lying in wait?

How would you change your day?

Would you find new clues to catastrophe?

Would you fling the drawer on the floor?

Would you envy the bleeding and troubled?

How would you decide what is next?

Would you relax into soft arms?

Would you smooth the sheets and plump the pillow?

Would you keep watch for mad dogs and dangerous spiders?

How would you go on?

Would you decide you have already paid?

Would you paint the past in new colors?

Would you protect your neck from the ax?
