the kings of sorrow

By | 1 November 2012

the drizzle strips
the palette bare,

as blank & as fragile
as methuselah’s hair.

the kings of sorrow
face down the waves

& stare, their weary
eyes relinquish care;

like gods invoked
in the white-lead

glare of a guiltless
sun on contrite air.

all history drowned out
by the cackle of seasons.
