I feel it.
Steeped in the landscape.
The smell ever more present, ever more bitter.
It spreads. Vapors whirl and stay, here am I, isolated.
It gets ready. Unseen on the surface, the attack has already begun.
It makes no noise. My clothes reek of its perfume.
I do not move anymore.
Where to go ? What to pick ?
My head seems lethargic. My hands tremble with stupor.
I try to move them in front of my mouth to absorb the panic.
My breath seems to betray my position.
I do not want to be taken but things have to come to an end.
It comes near.
I still have not moved. I do not dare. I have only few choices within reach.
Although it does not scare me, the moment freezes me.
We need a final point, it and I.
