#2,567 Finish off that night alone

Mike Bell/ November 1, 2022/ www.mikebellpoems.com

Finish off that night alone
& look back – reprise each
conversation [consider all
& replay how much was in
your harkings that may be
heard in other heads] – via
speech we exist & in those
spats we’ll evaporate – our
given – our prize [that time
on our side] – we do not – I
don’t – nor do you – have it
all – we reside less as after-
thoughts – we are not their
honeypots of sweetnesses
[or sugar-coated loves] – in
stints memory is lost [time
is a heavy ghost] – sleep as
if boreal nights are agreed
in deals – deal in sick Gods
