alternate-

 

a distant dust field rises,

melancholy and choleric,

and i float my fingers through the watery static

and pray that i’ll be alright.

 

this is where i find myself after

doing time for spreading whispers,

rallying silent conspirators,

treason against better judgement.

 

there is no sun here, only

the gentle, sorrow-laden light

of too long, too hard, too loved

and here, we rest.

 

-a.h.
