The Thoughts Meander - Poem by Frederick Kesner


revolutions of the second hand
are innumerable to the watchful eye,
which has not comforted this bruising


nor can heart's run far enough away
from pulsing, cancerous gangrene;
and off to the darkest mile it treads


in the cooling of a fading day,
a gentle crushing blow fixes completely
the drowning, despondent smiles

...of yesterday

as wafting wavelets wail forlornly,
while whispering affections now silent;
hearkening back to more innocent times

...found wanting
