Shattered

SHATTERED

Somewhere on the other side
Of the debate was this
Singularity of reason
Turning sounds gravid like lead.
Like- whatever happens is
For the good, take heart- in
Inverted commas in an 
Otherwise smooth going narrative
Makes one sit up or yawn

Sounds of rain grinding itself
Again into another
Water in the mortal dish
As the incense burned away
As dust and inconsequence.

Bearers of names hovered 
about as naysayers of 
continuity.  Black crows 
perched on remembrance
and picked on debts
of inheritance.

The day was just not right
Though. Just 18. Just 
Monday. Just February.
Too youngness pitted against
Dieableness. The coming
Of age will ultimately
Take aeons of anguish to complete.
