ruminations (20170919)

do you sleep in that skin
or do you discard it at night?

what flows in your veins
beside mercury and regret?

what offerings will you accept
once your clay bowl has shattered?

why does the mouse
return to the trap?

when my voice is silent
how do you hear me?

    1. It was inspired by Neruda, or at least the bit posted on Dverse tonight. I’m glad you like it.

      I really enjoy your latest pieces, too.

  1. This one kicks, especially:
    ‘do you sleep in that skin
    or do you discard it at night?’
    and
    ‘what flows in your veins
    beside mercury and regret?’
