** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: blues

for every sunset,

the first of september

the first of september
passes almost without
a sound, but
for the roar of
cicadas from
outside my
bedroom window,
handing off each
second, as if it were
the leader of the band

periodically,
the heart gets loosened, rattles
in the middle of

the night, to a mysterious
rhythm, waking everything

seal off injury,
adapt, try
for anything
resembling a pearl
