closing scenes

stuck
shadow’s shame
lain now down
in lame low hollow

ditch of no tomorrow
burrow that borrowed
clock’s hands
none stand

crows flock on lame land
blame’s band of brothers
who strangled one another
entangled in struggle for cover

from soul’s scorching sun
watchman’s torch on ‘inner one’
hidden or gone
buried under rubble from

this mine
we dig down daily steep decline
and ailments of the respiratory
blackest of lungs in this darkest of stories

stark, tall trees that hold keys
to survival on this bobbing blue blip
smeared with sobbing, slaying, a sip
or two of wine
sunk down in silence
as our sun sinks in rhyme
