An Ode To

I’ve an empty vessel

But I hold onto my pains

Like the last vestiges of winter


What melts within me

That I can no longer preserve

Siphons to my clay chamber

Then leaks out.


A forgotten crack found

And the ice no longer seals

As the hinterland thaws,

In a frost quake.


My soul tremors from the thaw and not the ice.


The liquid mixes with clay

Making the vessel new again

Only to turn it sanguine

And seeping.


Will this feeling linger

Or will I forever pour out

And discover new flaws,

In my cool clay

Free of sensation,

Wherever I lay,

My head weeping.
