Daily missive for Wednesday the 10th of October.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Wednesday the 10th of October.

There is no surrender
To the smoking gun
Life has become
Your fingerprints
Are all over it
Neither one of us wore gloves
There is no bad weather
Just bad clothing
Walk with me
Through the blizzard
There is no reliable way
To see which way
The road leads
When visibility is restricted
To the hand in front of my face
It would be easy
To lose direction
A sense of proportion
With you
My fingers are numbed
From clinging on
To the edge
Of the familiar
Would that I could
Let go
But the fear
Of leaving
Is outweighed
By the fear
Of something
Worse than mere oblivion
Agnostic uncertainty
Holds me together
Although the seams
Are set to burst
The essence of life
Whatever its impurity
Ready for dispersal
The blood
A finite spread
Every drop
Will be a trail
Too indistinct to follow
Into the dark
We may never meet
If it were not so
Perhaps I would surrender
To the call
Smoking gun
Or no…
