#81 of 365 – “above the turn”

“above the turn”


their red lines choke me

and make it difficult to breathe


and my tears, filled with residue

offer no reprieve


from this wasteland

of lessons ignored and denied


and the punitive silence

like a cancer inside.


I am vague

and make decisions, ill-advised and unproficient


that drag me into the polluted hollow

of funds-insufficient


but the struggle remains

to keep my soul above the turn


where the waters of forgiveness

stave off my own destructive burn
