Sinking Oblivion -- Poetry 2011


One breath at a time
wheeze and squeak
lungs work over time
who cares carelessness;
pet allergens wreak
body in ill repair
matching humble house
sinking into wasteland.
Harboring no ill will…
sunny persons
dance in light
while grim clouds
obscure hers;
mini failures,
mini deaths…
eating away hope.
Ribbons of black,
dawn’s shroud,
shrink wrapped form;
airless compression
floating specs
aberrations in mind
state of emergency.
Locking her doors,
drinking all her milk,
eating all her bread and eggs
not coming out until it's done…
