POST-SCORCH, 18 OCTOBER 2013

We float through a world

that's surrendered to

sepia-infused Gothicism.

Yesterday, many were handed

loss, confusion and statelessness

for all their years of hard work.

On my windscreen wiper,

a raven-dark praying mantis,

as big as the word Lord

in a hymn book,

desperately tries

to cling to air.

Ah, I didn't mean to click on the 'like' option. Mea culpa. LJ
