Shipping deadlines are coming. Gift original in time for the holidays.

after hopelessness

there are straight roads,
and fresh sheets,
all along the sweet ocean,
where we return
after hopelessness.

there are soft kisses,
and open faces,
as the ground comes up to meet us,
when we come home,
after hopelessness.

there are new baubles
to be hung proud,
there is a fire in the grate,
and a toasting fork awaits,
when we come round,
after hopelessness.

the earth may yet open up,
we may yet get our just desserts,
and all that we deserve,

but now is not the time
to be afraid,
of the choices made, and not made,
not now,
after hopelessness.

after hopelessness
