You ask 

for my wholeness.

Once again,

I say

‘I am scattered’.

Gaze on a real world, 

beyond the darkened windows. 

Pieces less a puzzle.

Fever, fever, skin cold.

Blue lips, pulled in breath.

Ears new to own

Seldom are not sorrows, nor are we sedentary creatures. No surprise dreams go in search of singing songbirds.

Tender from past sorrows, gentle the demand. 

Painful it is; 

seeing more appreciation 

for given crumbs 

than the given loaf. 

I did not grieve

for the fallen leaf,

grief is for the tree

from which

it has fallen.
