blurry eyes
don’t focus
like they once did
as the thunder
behind vacant stares
the world seems
in mirage

how do you calm
the storm
that seems
to rustle
the vagrant stakes
of nonendearing
into a pulpit of shame

the light lacerates
the skin
of hopeless wonder
until all that sizzles
on the hot stones
is dead
to unseeing eyes
and darkness
is but a dream
