Block

Block

 

I have forgotten for many years

that two glances shared can shift the world

and that even though I am so shrivelled

there are seas

but today

I wandered

and stole emotions

I stowed them beside my belly

with the dry rice

of a meal I did not enjoy

I sat where the sole of my foot itched

and typed to type

and tried to try again

I chiselled at the block

there were no emails or letters

the ceiling struck me with a noise

and the hungry pigeon clawed at the roof

I do not have any money in my wallet

and my library books are overdue

I don’t know what to say
