for the first time in my life

Posted to Action Poetry




i'm cryin....

like a distant sound
broken
in the middle
of restless hours
that bend into
the daily routines of
a fadin poignancy
spelled out
in signs and sound...

for the first time
in my life
i'm dyin....

a red stained wrist
lifted
into heartless beats
that kiss the midnight
and walk on water
faulty words stillborn
as they slip between
opening of a wrist...
