Each exit from the path was a risk

You never knew how people
 would react 
to a girl stealing to save her pointless life

Smoke whipped and curved from this chimney.
She imagined it was her house before she broke all the windows.

A single dash
a leap
and she could take
a neat rock through the window
able to warm herself just with the thought
what wonders and fears 
might await her 
on her next twirl.
