#395 – an unlovely place

an unlovely place


so heavy

this minutia renders the day

so lonely

its dreams having passed away

I wake

to the iron air buckling beneath

the sheer tax

of hope and the burden of grief


it’s such a small corner

I occupy here

where the face of my hours

cower in fear

leaving nothing to hold

and nothing to give

and a vacuum within which

nothing can live
