Daily missive for Tuesday the 12th of December.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Tuesday the 12th of December.

It is a trial
This waiting
For the world’s end
If redemption is a dream
How will I know
Answers are in short supply
Questions remain open
To hermeneutic
Interpretation
Breathing takes effort
In a heavy atmosphere
There is no humour
In gravity
It brings one down.
Holding on to
The belief
Help will come
Competes with the
Experience
Of other tourists
Who have their own
Fear of destinations
With which to cope.
I travel in hope
It is not an easy path
Nobody knows
Which direction is up
The construction
Is a matter
For conjecture
The turning circle
Is not a clearly
Marked paradigm
As such
And pigeon holes
Are no protection
Against the rain.
Is this all
We have in the end
A place in a queue
Of questions
Each one louder
Than the last
Until nothing is heard
But the noise
Of one’s own confusion
Prickle my skin
It will tell
Me if I am still alive
The verdict
Is a long time coming
Waiting
Might well be
The death of me.
