Back Pocket Book Entry 18


The snake and sepia-tone

reduced by use and age.

 

A smolder or restoration –stoked

and blown upon,

retouched to no avail.

 

The eyes find no warmth

anymore.

 

Only the history of heat remains

the hands

have been lowered

from where the flames leapt.

 

Still, askance the view

after all these years

all the familiarity

was of no comfort

Even after the color faded.
