I am the detritus of

a life half lived

half dreamed

left behind

crumpled paper

discarded bottles

in colours of cherry

and grey

strewn across

decades of promised


hair ribbons


broken necklace chains

pens without ink

life without breath

I am the detritus

of a life half-lived

in the shadows


for jusjojan: detritus brought to you by me!
