For A Friend

Post  ratman on Mon Jan 09, 2017 2:59 am

The days aren't discarded or collected, they are bees
that burned with sweetness or maddened
the sting: the struggle continues,
the journeys go and come between honey and pain.

No, the net of years doesn't unweave: there is no net.

They don't fall drop by drop from a river: there is no river.

Sleep doesn't divide life into halves,
or action, or silence, or honor:
life is like a stone, a single motion,
a lonesome bonfire reflected on the leaves,
an arrow, only one, slow or swift, a metal
that climbs or descends burning in your bones.
