hope

with me today you are
thinner than a thought
help me salvage clumps of hope
as if pulled from some stuffy drawer
tucked away behind shirts
or maybe socks
unmatched and unnoticed
like the sneering sun mocking me
as it convulses and spits
large sallow sunflower petals
damp across blue
and white
you linger here still
with me today
grabbing at anything
smelling of hope
even as it flies past
like silver slivers
dripping from an overturned jar
melting

One thought on “hope
