Daily missive for Thursday the 20th of April.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Thursday the 20th of April.

Such dreamless, seamless beauty
Slipping silently into
A hollow of shallow
Landscaped shadows
Increasingly deepening.
Barely a register of surprise
At the ease of dislocation.
Complications are for the faint hearted
Barely started
Searching for concord
Living by numbers.
Unknowable is more than a mystery
It is what will come
Of the morning after
When history is what happened today.
How do you sleep
With all the noise
Overwhelming the hubbub of life
It rings an endorsement
Of itself with every
Thought crossing
The divide between then and now.
Ruminate with me
Rattle through the empty pages
For an answer
To the reason for believing
In questions as social levelling.
This is no playing field
None of the fears haunting
The closing of days
Tolerate close scrutiny
Melting into the abyss
Just as they solidify
A broken fingernail out of reach.
Is it mutiny
To consider this conscious perusal
As less a sleep disrupted
Dystopian darkening of the soul
And more a refusal to submit.
There is an extravagance in
Self-aggrandisement
Which will inevitably lead to
Cathartic destruction.
This path is well-trodden
Mired with the blood of vain efforts
Drowned in the ripened
Tears of the self-absorbed
And debilitated
By more than a few
Brittle fragments
Of the token hearted.
