Misdirection by Dah


Sometimes the gray sun

is dry rain

or an old bone

other times my head’s


is a host of discontent


There are times I wear melancholy

like deep sleep

so rising to the day creates

a storm that places its mouth

over my ears

and blows cold nocturnes


Some days I hold tightly to

the quiet that surrounds me

and listen to the dead

for they have much to say

about unfinished lives


Inside the fog’s drowsiness

moisture is a grounded parachute

and light’s eye has rolled back

into its skull


Sometimes out loud

I ask What is the point

But my thoughts are

discombobulated, misdirected


I wait for an answer

but there are so many

that I cannot separate them

and somebody inside

keeps laughing and laughing
