Recycling the Romantic (2022)


everything beginning again to be

                                   covered in the slightest of dusts

                   being blasted by the ragged

                             restless winds which rattle the back 

       door sending dried-out winter leaves

                             and insects flying past 

the weeks-old smoke hazing the horizon 

                                  turning the light through 

closed windows 

                           and the view outside already

                               into memories of the days

              we were sleepier and the time before 

the real fires came
