It’s only 10.00 on Saturday night but am going to bed where I’ll pop a fluff movie (The Holiday) into the DVD player and hope it’ll lull me off to sleep. When I wake this crater inside me will be filled with my dreams of tonight and life can resume.
For now I’ll get some words down which might help to empty me of this absent feeling.
Green coat bloodied,
Dying, twisting, falling
Bare arms reaching for the concrete sky
Beseeching, more sun
Imploring, more time
