“Just beyond the bruised lips of consciousness.”

from Birds Again

~ Jim Harrison

The stars once bright in eyes now faded and gray
 
viewing the world through tangled trees
 
a purple haze of permanent contusions,
 
amid barren thoughts of rotting leaves
 
the result of love damaged beyond reason.

 

No matter the season, it’s always the same
 
the unconscious beckoning,
 
 and unveiling of the beginning of her pain
 
when the world went black in the midst of tears
 
that reigning moment when it all became clear
 
and then vanished in the smoke of confusion.
