blame the day –
its long slide of blue
its tremulous twitch
of shocking sunlight
blame the day –
for clangorous sheets
of frothing music
fanned by a fat wind
blame the day –
life skitters between
our clutching fingers
leaking the beauty
of a thousand days
spilled amidst the clouds
marking the burning end
– begin anew
