wishes and prayers are equally ignored in the day to day misery of existing

the entirety
of my existence
is painted
in the pre-dawn
promise
that today
will be different
each morning
spent sipping coffee
staring at
the ebon skies
where the saturation
of solar radiation
slowly erases
the blinking stars

i try to lasso
each vanquished speck
with a muttered wish
the words
forming a callus
on my tongue
through sheer
repetition
empty words drift
the meaning evaporated
in the heat of passion
the ashes of prayers
just popcorn kernels
in the bleeding gums
of forever

One thought on “wishes and prayers are equally ignored in the day to day misery of existing
