Daily missive for Thursday the 6th of July.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Thursday the 6th of July.

Does it have value
Without love
Strangely unmoved
By emotion
It slips by unnoticed
Until it stops
Without warning.
An immovable object
Of mountainous
Proportion
Unstable shale
Loose underfoot
Slipping and sliding
With no purchase
A frightening tumble
Into infinity
Which never looks back.
It is a crevasse
Opening beneath your feet
Widening inexorably
Sides sheer
With no finger holds.
The slide begins
Without remorse
Nails break
Bones shake
Nothing alleviates the fall.
It is an empty hall
With blank white wall
Featureless
With nowhere to anchor
Progress.
There is no passage
To further change
No difference
Nothing strange.
Without motive
There is no life or death
No crime
It is too late then
To comprehend
The variation so
Consistently applied
To the value
Of time.
