JANUARY

 
The new year
Has slipped
Into second gear
Unconcerned
By human wishes
It trundles along
Like an almost
Silent song
Sung at the back
Of your mind
By a singer
Forgotten
Never known
Without the hype
That forces
Lesser songs
To belong
Unloved
Yet madly learned
In your tattered

Scattered heart…

The new year
Is dripping
Into your life
Like the indifferent
Tears of a whore
Lamenting
Something
You will never
Understand
Or even comprehend
As you pretend
To live
As best you can
In your cobbled
Scrambled
Many Peopled
Yet lonely
Slowly changing
Calendered dream…
