      name your price



an old pain,
generations passed,
resonating in your bare branches,

dull, and bleak, and undefined
not dissimilar
to that of knowing without knowing

an apology then,
bland, and bleak,
a thud
it sits in my throat,
as it will get stuck on your tongue

will you take the reins, if there's no-one left?

worse for wear
a callous on a new hand
bitter ends to bitter nights

let them answer one thing
what it is to care
droughts and floods will take us
