A Poem

Conserving air
sorting the day’s documents
but sighing sometimes
too loudly
encrypting the thought in grief
Conscripted to frailer muses
the noise of change ringing
night & day
Trying to stay with the battle
but frightened
into the bushes into disguise
The heart isn’t quiet
the pressures of disbelief
grinding down looming sketching around
a fabric of the unreconciled
Like a prescription left unattended
