Window Steam

 

Written by J H Martin @ A Coat for a Monkey

 

The delays

And the reason

Are always the same

 

I see it wrapped around

The skin’s pagoda

 

I feel it

Filling my solitary shell

 

This need to make more

This thirst for control

This link of a chain

This gas for the eyes

 

Turning tired lowering

 

They say a lesson bitter learned

Is better than no lesson ever learned

 

The fines and the debts

The fights and protests

The rucks and the racks

They all add up with interest

And make the silence heavier

 

Wrapped up and packed down

I watch the boards catch the rain

 

New pools for new reflections

 

A world floating at sea
