dim without reason

Hobo’s huddle over mounds of kerosene laced phlegm, burning down the men they could never be. Fought little resistance, carried out windows; stereos, televisions, sympathy, wits, mirth, cause, effect, worship. Games played often, changing the rules with every die cast.

Fought hard never. Ugly feast approaching. Cleared a mountain-sized molehill, sticking out my tongue and flipping the bird to passers by innocent. Reaching their destiny was never planned for fretting in the way. Squandered lives of love, the wake of which crashes over us all, from the very big to the not so small.

Down prevails.
Up cries foul.
Lurkers fear radiance break.
Brilliance quakes fighting darkness forever.

Finding a lost shoe, its mate having been long trashed. Confounded weight rest at my hand. Switching on and sits in the dark, irritated from the wait of it, scratching scabs itch. Bidding on time to find they all “lost” their wallets, making I.O.U.’s on the birthday of a son and daughter and something that resembles a lie. Punching out Forever, rending foot shaped holes in its widows, torn black lace trapped in boot tread. Forgiveness no longer an option, the only plot to course; escape.

Kicking stereos out windows fighting in black lace missing pieces of the game. Tires cross greens grass, mud left behind in beauty’s stead. Perpetually rolling unapologetic. Crafted tales of treasures, showing cracks from holes in your story. Belief; only to shut it off.

Feigning interest at his legend, looming largely and blinding bright wasted on dead eyes. Home never was. Fighting hard forever, made more difficult. Frozen, bitter hands that chill of steel lamppost, lost in climates of December. Collapse looming, ravens and doves belligerent to give their lives in a war of seesaw, every upswing another wasted life, until one sits alone blinking ignorance at none.
