Daily missive for Friday the 14th of December.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 14th of December.

It is a hot wind
Acrid with the scent
Of desperation
Carried in the dust
Of the desert
Dried from a carrion sun
Old bones ground
Into fine ash
An unclaimed deposit leaves
A bitter taste furring
The tongue
With the grist
Of the defeated
Seared through
A relentless sirocco
Beaten are the withered
Fruits
Of the desiccated
Passion is lost
In flight
Only the husks
Remain
Tossed as chaffe
Blown in the face
Of a sun god
Spitting broken
Promises
Hotter than
A lost summer in
A market garden paradise
Waiting for a
Climate of change
