so little left

Smoke spins into nothing
before brushing the lowest branches.
Cold stone for a seat,
like the one in my stomach.

Straight back;
Planted feet;
Dry eyes.

A face that Stephen Fry
couldn’t read.

Closed.
Bound.

Fin.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
