Daily missive for Friday the 10th of January. World on Fire~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 10th of January.
World on Fire

Dominoes falling
Arthritic fingers
Pointing to the sky
Calling for rapture
Candles burning down
Ripened seed pods
Drying in the sun
London Plane trees
Cross-pollinating
All year round
There is smoke on the water
From a funeral pyre
Where the dead
Are mourners
Time is not for sale
The price is too high
To look for bargains
In the cheap seats
Fresh air is hard to come by
Even when raining,
Dirty water
Stains cracked windows
Like mascara
Melting to a torch song
In a late-night
Jazz lounge
A madcap world
Is crying real tears
Drying in a heat haze
Sighing in a remnant
Of memory
Dying for the want
Of a reason.
