Random Poem:

End of line
JoelJosol

I see the light
 1
from firecrackers dim,
 2
as if poured into hidden spaces.
 3
 
 
The sky is a blank wall.
 4
Not one star blinks
 5
or glows,
 6
 
 
Like a poem whose thoughts
 7
are unexpressed, halted
 8
past the end of line.
 9
 
 
I hear the horns fading,
 10
isolating the echo
 11
of a breath.
 12
 
 
The air does not waver
 13
like you do,
 14
words stalling in their place.
 15
 
 
In the powder-filled air,
 16
my words were clobbered
 17
by the mist.
