My only wish
to pen
my pain
my loves
elusive
visions
in repose

Instead
I am ground
like mute
cattle
Under the greedy
wheel of industry
crushed & cursed
by the insatiable
children
of responsibility

I am young
but old
feeble
Unable to lift
such weights
Will you
lend muscle
to bone?
Will you
draw draughts
from a dustbowl
well
for a trembling glance
beyond
the Eleysian veil?

You & I
conjoin twins


shackled
to fantasy
I taste
the rust
of our chains
I
cry & creak
in the
marrow

If you
step up
to
bend
the hands
of the iron
clock
I will
lend
stick balance

& wipe
your face
as we
tumble
into
the gutter
below
