Seeping Into Blackness


Seek not the night, it will not find you.

Leave your skin on the shores of day,
For night will not walk away.

Seeping into blackness;
screeds of dead stars;
fragments: degradation’s sacrifice –
pain and silence,  – a vita negativa

an excess in squalor and torpor
leading to nocturnes and lamentations, knives and daggers;
before the shadows fall,
breath of time;
a slow immersion, decay and absorption:

effacement of the human…

quietly sifting databanks of nothingness,
slipping into forgetfulness

until the sun blanks out
