Born out of chaos,
they dress up in liquid emeralds
and escape their turbulent home.
Half-way across the world,
they become aware of their own futility:
running away was never a solution,
the chaos was inside them all along,
following them on their journey.
Relentless fugitives exhausted from the chase,
they expire quietly on the beach.
a last breath,
A picture wiped clean
