Saturday Morning

blue-neck-nape

[…]

All the candles
burning down to the metal,

the radiator singing its dumb water song.

[…]

The dust
in my lungs.
Knock it
out of me.

[…]

When
did it get so cold?

~ Marty McConnell, Elegy

    • Yes, Bill. Your comment reminds me of:

      Cruel, the way God plays it.
      The more we know of time, the less we have of it.
      The less we have, the more we want.
      The scales of justice.

      ~ Colum McCann, Thirteen Ways of Looking: Fiction (Random House Publishing Group. 2015)
