Dark Moods

( for her )

Words attack

in gray letters

while sitting behind a desk,

arrive hanging from the robe,

the hands, and the thoughts.

Every part is injured

with no cure

and nothing to

swing open the mind.


The motionless floors

Cannot cover the pain that is

Dropping from the walls

-blood and the songs that are hammered

to the loneliness of a poet

And the multiplication of Sheema.


I am sure death has pierced your motionless body by now

Is your hair growing in gold?
