Drawing a blank

from a well deep with atrophy

apathetic entropy decrees that I’m done with these

interrelated topics that stress there sad tropical taste

mixed berry tums to smooth the grumble

and bite down on bitter haste

slow down and face the music as it plays

to fuse this categorical cue

to take the stage set for another

beset by all others and regretting that I’d even bothered

to bleat out a plea for release when I’m seeing colors

fading to black without going back

and believed me I’ve tried

no one will follow this

no one will read or rely

on the tinkling beat of a wind chime

as it reaches that point where music forms sublime

and without a listener it would still be

still speak and still see

waiting on a windowsill sleek

where droplets of dew on my cheek dried
