“Trust in the future in your loneliness”
— G.E. Patterson

regardless of care
we who love/d short
we who desire/d
let ourselves be led
by a thing of distance
of vastness
of there of then of those
this fullness of a door
no longer a beyond
here knocks decided silence
never mind the inspiration
it fades from the window
a house comes down
on itself
