Sky Collection — Poem 53

the slow release of the artifacts
making up a life
the jewelry purchased late night
home shopping at its easiest hour
after midnight when the most vulnerable
susceptible to hands offering relief
still at the bar sipping a Moscow Mule
an invitation to be driven home
or bed bound/when use of only the hands
might be made better by zirconium
it’s all the same numbness
life’s stubborn clinging
what is humane
