Elegy on an Election

Share Button

Suddenly, i woke up
dead   shocked    lost
the ground beneath me
was gone, but i sensed there
was something better and
i found the dead man a
wake! My sigh of sorrow
turned into a ball of
fire! And it felt like the
dead were unquestionably unwoke.

There’s a crack in ever
ything. That’s how the light
gets in. * As innocent
as day break! As fresh as

morning dew!
