with a day comes another day,

one misery placed against

another misery,

a betrayal and then

the second betrayal,          

from one hurt inches out

the other hurt

thus my commeasuring


when it hits

shame nips

and gnaws at me

day follows

another day

like a worm without prints

oozing quietly on

the time-settled

cobwebs scattered there

shiver a little

among sharp coughs

this day, let it dawn
