STILLNESS IN COLDNESS

Stillness,

In the land that was shaky is stillness

Which floats in the cold, this stillness

Abounds

 

It was trust

It was trust which caused this stillness

Trust for respect on corruption

In this town

 

There was merriment

There was merriment when he won,

No wonder, disappointment sits in stillness

And weighs

 

It is drying

The leaves on respect are drying

Drying to an era of revival or breakage

They swear breakage

 

When our stomach churns like an angry mill,

And our throats cake and crack like ice

Our brains remember, here and here

A little water and food, and we forget

 

We need a store,

A store for aches and pains

A store to influence our choices

In the future
