Under Grey Skies

“Life is an illusion, but an illusion we must take seriously.”

— Aldous Huxley

under grey skies
the lovers hit the shore

while the rain fell dry

with the wind


& the day was dying

grieving, unsafe

blurring at the edges
like a shot

through a cheap wide-angle lens – – –

 

now the gloom lies heavy

against backlit minds & windows – – –

 

remembering old times

& idle efforts

I cast a backward glance

across the water
