i live (i was elected so).
i haven’t any following.
i’m not made real by kneeling here,
before the pond leaves’ absolution.

inside each glen
that carves in elms,
the space is uninheritable.
the times are theirs, though i keep watch.

i feather in november mud
where i am bedfast,
where i am lightproof.

i try to sing the songs i’ve learned,
ordain a ministry in the brush
and transmute the world into some medium,

if even just a mandate of one
where i am relevant
and ever heard

(from).
i'm tired.

Gosh :faint: :heart:
That first line is just so strong and relatable.

"The times are theirs but I keep watch" :heart: wow.

:"Lightproof."

"A ministry in the brush and transmute the world into some medium" :heart:

The ending is a little sad...
I just love the way you have described this place.

Loved this :heart:

Thanks so much Debjani. Honesty is my only poetic axiom.

Something about being bedfast and lightproof is very compelling.

Cool. I've found some use for my relative lack of corporeality. :heart:
