Standard

Are a trick of the author.

Prompt for December 3: Two Haiku about the Agent

Standard

[Prompt from http://daily-writing.blogspot.com/ . This upcoming week of prompts are going to be connected.]

Ordinary man.
Not quite different from you.
Yet possesses skills.

You will never see
If he doesn’t wish you to.
That man dressed in black.
