Daily missive breaks into the weekend Sunday the 22nd of January.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend Sunday the 22nd of January.

Stillness
Tight lipped
Noiseless
A disappearing silhouette
Barely disturbing
The surface
It falls upon
The air draws apart
With the hiss
Of a safety curtain
At a threepenny opera
Invisibility slips through.
What intention is served
To be unnoticed
Unobserved
A ghost
Overlooked
By design
Or by circumstance.
The pale rider
A strangely acquired
Mantel on which
Dust has fallen
Distributed by momentum
And in this movement
A benign profile
Is revealed
Slipping between raindrops
Dissolving into tiny cracks
That splinter
The surface tension
Ever hopeful
Of evading the call
Of recognition
The announcement of action
Pronouncement
Of participation
Made visible
To the acutely embarrassed
Who in the seeing
Find it hard to turn away.
A fish out of water
Caught on a hook
Give me the
Mercy stick
Away with misery
The last gasp
Is on me.
