2171: Idled-times

  • by

Here were less so-small
defeats [but everything
had collapsed] – quiet in
moments without voice

or points [or excitement
it had been said] – bland
responses – also paid for
as squaring come-backs

& back-lit bitching [sure]
& turning-to hardenings
below – again [Not now!
was also said] – & idlings

& avows bleaching – in a
white hot sun [a shadow
slowly abounds – a reap
& shudder – such a quiet

fool] – His neighbour too
saw how it all went from
light to dark [brief – back
again] – Do not – don’t

rotes of negatives flitted –
& now is an idle-time of
benefits – of less efforts –
[now an advantage too]
