Again

One-oh-eight

Beads of sweat

Drops in the ocean

Diamonds in the mine

Kilograms to lower

Then lift again

And again

108

Singing

When Leonard sings of
Her sweet little sounds

Does he mean

When she was coming?
When she was going?

Or, in between

when she was singing?

Passing

Beads of sweat
traverse
rolls of fat

Broken incense stick
smoulders
becoming ash

Long before 108
cr-rack !
of Jisu Sunim’s bamboo

Changes

I used to
write about my darkness

then I
wrote about the light

for many years

I fell silent
paralysed by my plight

25 March 2018

Blind

A special kind of hell
Suburbia with no escape

A zombie marriage

Long dead but still stumbling

Not put down
