She blinked, and a lifetime had passed

She started this job as a lark

But my soul was being torn asunder,

A Vain Word

as I read in leaves’ Sanskrit brief moments remaining
till sunset implodes, till the moon strands grey pearls

devoid of visages; outwardly staring back at my 
Abject countenance with detached contempt and...
