Respite

 
Pause
to ponder
day diminished
‘neath majestic oak
winter bare thine leaf
where goes no shade,
dreary
dank
damp
here I cooled
mine restless heart
when warm and
overflowing
bursting
yet it yearns

Opus

Enveloped

slithers by Indigo moon

wrenching, afflicts

ravages deaf silence

busts the rivets of my abyss,

explodes my desperate peace.

Prescriptions

her story bare begun

quick tangled in the telling

twisted down the road

tired ‘ere her finish

Rails

click clack
click clack

river rising out my window
quick passes phones don’t ring and closed cafes
faster rumbles on trembling tracks
past rusty cranes and broken scaffolds
fucking thunder roaring in my head,

"Who will you be, why do you run, where will you go?"

click clack
click clack

happy porter staggers car to car
his stubby smoke-stained finger
prods and pokes me free of weary thoughts,
"Pleasant evening, your ticket, sir?"

"I haven’t one,
I’ll be off right here."
