He smeared his essence there, 

Foetal in the bitter stagnant heavens, 

With the child handprints engraved 

Into the snow like petite gods belligerent 

For the currency of atonement. 


In denial, his mirrors wept, 

As in self-perception, 

He comprehended that he had befallen 

Everything he sought to be. 


That it had come wholly 

And devoid of sorrow. 

He certainly never considered 

This sweet day would arise in flesh, 

As it had in timescale dependency's, 


And he truly believed that 

In living forever 

And touching the skyline 

Of all that is in grasp 


You can truly leave

A mark on the world. 

You would think the hills are alive here, 

As he lay bathed in red sweat, 


Because there is no true sense 

To the air and he felt soiled 

In the cleanliness

Of all that is at hand. 


Simple white nothings stare from glass jars and old bars
