Steeped dark

in the solitude of my thoughts

I lay forgotten

in an empty room

as if poured from a pitcher

onto smooth glass



idly reach out with index finger

to trace deepening shadows

on the white wall

traveling contours

of an imaginary landscape

that I long to escape to

as twilight falls soft


around me
