The Void

Melancholic awareness across an unrealized America.
The realization that food and sleep are necessary;
Booze is wiser than those who drink it.
To know unknowable fathers on a desolate winter morning,
Lying in bed.
To wake up in a strange bed with a heart not acknowledged.
Monstrous cities;
Falling in Love at every intersection.
The crooked, coarse, crazed, simple secret of ever-heart
is beating amidst the fogs of random harbour towns.
An infinite embrace of the downtrodden lost soul;
A picture detailed enough that the fanatics might
grasp their hindrance of Jesus’s pure intent.
Dead all at once;
Born on the same day.
Where do we turn in the void, Jack?
