aftermath~

1.
trees are bare.

the gap between bones clatter.
i am haunted by Melancholia.

someday-
…….if not tonight-
someday

i might be the one floating down an unlit Lethe
i am scared and
i can no more feel your eyes in mine

2.
the air is vacant-
a polythene shout-

i am looking for sleep

in wilderness
……..in vestiges-
it was i who screamed when
the last leaf tore open her veins.

now there are only voices
cold ……………………..e c h o e s.
