Dip your toes,

in the water;


cool brushes,

glacial case,


in a pattern,

like a canvas,




you hold on

to everything


you love, but

battle inside


with darkness

unbound; it’s


truth ever-last,

the moment


in time, when

cast iron, and


chains square

off, but human


beings prove,

life is more


than loneliness;

castigate, and


tear the fabric

of time; erupt.
