Bystanders

by grimbeau

Damaged goods lie on a kitchen table in a house in Donetsk, Ukraine

Attempts to engage

& inspire provide

Mere, cheap free

fatuous masonry

to bolster up

& elaborate her

Forty fictions;

 

So, off he traipsed,

hill sheep sullen

to wattle

& daub the beehive

against the elements;

 

Brittle bricks

& poor mortar

for fear’s shiftless,

feckless gaol:

Self.

 

I give up &

concern myselves

otherwise.

In confluence,

separation lies.
