Driftwood

Updated: Apr 2, 2020












I am driftwood,

no good

bush-fire carnage

or campfire soot

broken from a bough

or iceberg wreckage

without anker and root,

torn from ship and soil my

drifting streams my

splintered dreams my

incomplete carvings my

Carpenter sundered and now

floating in those hurried currents

aimless

faithless

weightless

because I'm hollow

and sun scorched

personified sorrow

this moon bare

this who-would-care

this way broken

today and tomorrow

no good,

I am driftwood


-MM
