IMAGES Fall 2021 contest theme is Sprawl!

 to steal space; to stand beneath a street lamp at midnight because otherwise the roads are dead; these empty arteries pumping people and fumes from edge to edge; to take pleasure in the way handprints stay in drying mud; spread into man made valleys and mountains; how fingers dirty with every passing graze against chain link fences; to lie down with you; limbs tangled with half-awake smiles; the sun is rising; i move again.
