Sitting in the dark

A crack in every window

Ants investigate

 

........

 

Against my own will

Hours spent with petty minds

And their dirty mouths

 

.........

  

No feelings or words

People tend flowers under

That strange lamp the sun

 

........

  

Mouth wide nine years old

There’s no pain without memory

Run away fast now

 

.........

  

Brought up to give up

And raised to fall down you find

Now there’s no answer
