1892: I have never known such

I have never known such loneliness
as this – I have my radio playing – a
streaming selection – my stomach’s
delicate lining was knifed [I sit alone
with my switched-on-kettle]/ This is
a cold space in which I live – & never
will I fill – with this one human form/
My broken parts rattle when shook/
I have never known such sadness – a
slippage of loose dunes [formless &
in motion] – forever – never settled in
this landscape/ I was a resolved rock
until pebbles were cast – a relentless
shower of fuck-ups & fucks [fuck off]
