Concrete Boots

exhaustion settles

a dark cloak enveloping

all the shadows hanging about

like rude girls on street corners

 

I hug the cloak tighter

frightened if it begins to flap

I’ll take off into the night

fly away and leave life behind

 

the wheels are in motion

peddling into infinity again

I’ll find the strength from somewhere

even if it kills me
