Fair // Tell

Fairytale comes crashing
in on top
leaving me facedown on the pavement wondering which way is up.
Intervals of intermediate intimacy occupies the hollows and grabs hold hoping
it's all a dream.

Today is a dark day
marked by sighs, solemn streams flow forcing
open the dam.
Inclusive raps at the door sheltered from the storm and drags in the chill behind him.

Windows slam shut
suffocating the empty hallways.
