Sudden Breaks the Emptiness

from the collection Oracles & Blabbermouths (2014)



Need i must i have i want

Full of dread of drear of daunt

Ever whether tether tied

Concrete sleep and sun-dried


Shall i can i will i try

Careless calloused crackled cry

Rather blather matter mess

Sudden breaks the emptiness


Should i could i would i call

The heaving breathing leaving fall

Scattered shattered tattered ends

Like letters lost a loved-one sends


May i say i stay all night

Timid tepid stall mid-flight

Fluttering muttering stuttering dawn

Simmering shimmering glimmering gone
