He was heavy in his breathing.

He laid prone to his allegiance’s call to stand up

for what he truly believed.

                                                                  With one foot dangling from

                                                                                               the mattress,

                                                                      the hesitation to step down,

                                                                                 gave way to dizziness.

“Why did I drink so much, so fast, last night?”

He played over and over in his head.

“I’m of no mind to tell her of the inescapable

desires.”, this almost broke him, as he awoke.

    For today was the date circled on the calendar

       to get started on what needed doing –

           signing up for Acitve Duty.
