Bristles in the Air

I draw a running time
Mirroring my face
Towards a broken space
Freezing my wrinkles –
An old age adage

I search the deepest treasure
Digging my grave again and again.
Stultified
I stitch my remains –
A cadaver for my own dissection

I war on my weakest spot
And win a loss
Comprehending the incomprehensible.
Rooted underground
I search my broken twigs

I paint the darkest colour
On a blank canvas
And hawk protruding night
to prey on my thoughts
with bristles in the air
