Dusty dreams, regrets renewed,
silk worm knots of worried thoughts.

Things we should be never will,
crowd my head, things unsaid.

And there’s a hole in the floor,
a pearl in the undertow,
only to rise when sleep fills my eyes.

Doom suspends a golden wire,
give some slack and take some back.

Warp and weft of who we are,
stained in red with skins we’ve shed.

And there’s a hole in the floor,
a glow in the ossuary,
phosphorus green where earth meets the stone.

A vessel to hold,
the bones of the long departed,
bore in the stone, a place for myself.

Pulse lightly,
thumb pluck the tine,
stir the night air.

Pull back your bow,
feel the poised
press of nothing.

I’m lying awake just sucking air,
a buckling weight I cannot bear,
I’ll wait for the cool collapse to find me,
me and no one else.

Sacred space,
leave no trace,
enfold into myself.

All I know is drawn below.
