Nothing Left to Say


Words fail me now
They come in drunken processions
stumble over the threshold
and stare at me unwillingly to help out
Their eyes are red and their noses blue
and I won’t bother to sober them up
or put them back on the barstools
when they fall over
I might even kick them instead

Because what is there left to say
So words could be of use?
Either way,
you go or stay,
I lose

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
