Looking Forward

Over a shoulder,

reflected in the

flaking silver

of an aged

mirror,

the reflection of

antagonism,

spittle mouthed,

corrupt with the froth

of acrimony,

begins to

receded.

 

Stored affronts

feeding the brute

diminish.

Once fiery words

diluted with the

fat of time

become

A spoon of

pablum, which

can sustain

no one

indefinitely.

 

Atrophied muscles

ache

with effort to turn

forward.

Eyes dilated,

flood fresh

in cobalt air

and blinding sky,

squinting anew,

battling to

leave sustained

darkness.
