13th August 2020

I hunger for the snowfall
Ache for its all-encompassing sterile blanket
Completing the isolation of my weary body
And ever fragmenting soul.

My universe shrinks
Responding to the erasures I daily commit
Expunging memories sweet and sour
To conjure infinite sleep from wakefulness.

Acquaintances mimic leper’s digits
Seeming attached when darkness falls
Dissolving overnight into fetid stumps
Wrapped in the bloody gauze of ages past.

I live, I breathe, I eat, I pray
Attempting invisibility yet exposed in bestial glare
A fallen angel tumbling out the sky
To land and be submerged neath cleansing snow.
