Ends and ends

Ends and ends

 

it came down to percentages

the balance of night against day

degrees of displeasure

your couch, my chair; stranger rituals

 

by afternoon, speech comes to an end

washing must be brought in,

the sounds of night have commenced

longing keeps its own counsel

 

today, the smell of the earth was full

as you dug and dug; pitting enthusiasm

against the reality of this new life

pushing the light toward dusk smoke
