The Risk-Taker

He finds nothing
so innately satisfying
as entering a room,
a town,
a country,
blind and deaf
to circumstance,
yet knowing
beyond all doubt
that honor, justice
and blood
hang in the balance.
Anticipation -
a rush of heat,
like lurid pastimes,
boils his blood
and fans his senses
to white-hot
danger.
He beckons
to those who share
his wanderings,
yet would often
prefer to avoid
the flames
he relishes.
A trio of heads
dance in resigned
synchronization:
"He's on the Jazz again."
