2020-08-27 – Grace’s Rung

words frame the thoughts
nudging you from
dark side

a squint contracting dusky
view til it rests my eyes
on shade of sill,

words may shower tongues
when room’s dust spins
its whirlpools,

and words can reach a lover too,
save when ladder’s slick
with tears and


piss and pig’s
blood too.
