Shallow Sounds

Barely at the level of hearing

Begging smells from the house
that can barely stand
Cold whips of desire
arching out of reach
pressure and hemorrhage
at the same time
The dysfunction of the remote
the staying-away
from pitiful rumination
A desperate series of moments
bleed into one long
and shallow sound
The energy for depth
buried in some hole decades ago
Trumping cane smoking
beer forts
the candles lapsing out

Writing without limits is freedom of expression. From sonnets to short stories, this is your platform to show who you truly are through putting pen to to paper.
