“Cross Fire,” by Joseph Ceravolo

 

This is the second day without anyone.

I am chinning against a dark sky

to strengthen my arms.

A picture of everyone I love passes through me.

 

No clear light streams thru this cell.

There’s no dawn.

What have I gained

by lying in this abyss,

waiting for the masonry

to show a little slit

for my soul to get through?

Anna Von Hausswolff, “Track of Time
