Exit Strategy

White-boarded brainstorm,
arrogance deformed:
exit compromised
foolishness; applied.

Planning strategy,
joint complicity:
cast means of escape;
arrogance relates.

Belongings crated,
business updated:
close door as you leave,
consequence conceived.

Unsurprising end,
quiet lover, best friend:
relationship done
replacement begun.

One in, other’s gone
yet both still alone:
eternal lament,
soul never content.
