E.A.

in a homeless house
feet shuffling towards clouded air
suspended in a vessel of regret
perched diagonal
to the end
of all paths
keys on chain-dangled soul
opening doors
of only the mind now
angel smoke
in tired confinement
breathed into burned holes in lungs
heard only by jagged edged shadows
congealed around a tired heart
drinking darkness
until
carrying sunflowers on his head, leaves
wilting
snapped raw at the stalk
as my heart
cracked inside my chest
the last eternal sunset
a sky flooded
with beacons
signalling
hoping
your way home
to a place of love
you only deserved
and could never find
on earth
