Saturday Morning



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.


did it get so cold?

    • 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)
