winking out

i woke up
the spiderwebbed
surface of
a frozen lake
each tentative
new thought
breaking me
into smaller
stabbing shards
floating over
frigid depths
an abyssal
polar plunge
into degenerative
doom spirals
as the wind chimes
clang endlessly
signalling a new
ignoble ending
a firefly orgy
winking out
one by one
a steady strobe
ever darkening
as hopelessness
swallows the day
