When all things come to an end Thursday Poets Rally week #27

The minimum difference of what makes things happen.

When meeting at the end of fortune--despair ...

lost to the few spectators passing. Unwinding in copper kettles.

Journey becomes a death of passion's subdued design.

Where knives and forks pierce the outer lining of the hemisphere.

To eat upon the weakness of the entertaining few and scattered

to eaves completely out of reach. Covered in black heaving rain.

Smothering and forcing the bile to rise from within.

  5. This is an interesting poem, Pamela. Seems to be different than your usual style. Fun to try a different kind of writing sometime. (Jingle invited me to this rally, but really I don't understand how it works..sigh.)
