disengaged

small talkhis comments on
lifeless weather
– distraction

overcast with pokes of colour
lazy clouds and mist
– unremarkable

plugging leaky dikes
of nervous quiets

and their demands
of his whole commitment
– presence, visit

to that painful sweet spot

where candor wrings
the heart

invoking fury
in his feeling parts
