throw up your hands

Contributed by ming on Friday, 10th March 2017 @ 06:00:55 PM in AEST
Topic: abstract

soaked clothes
in tears

her eyes first
the day born

locked in
my leaking

creeping up to
mouth their

sorrow ghost
crowded heads

these hands
can/'/t find

empty mourning
midwest train

river rises
seeping more wet

flooded with goodbyes
a hall forever

empty windowsill
current-less home

asleep of bones
blanket of night

caked in dirt

Mingingly haunting. As is your wont, I am left with impressions rather than summations.....just the way I like it.

Damn fine writing here. I/'/m waiting for the publishing career known as the Ming Dynasty.

haunting, saw this film, two people trapped in a deep ravine in the desert, man and women from differing tribe , yet they were same age. the desert dry the sand the sweat, then the elliptical frustration of feeling trapped, was it because of different class, they two they were of differing class, or was it because truly they both were trapped as they were. we see who we are or we maybe pretend to see who were are by luck, or is it luck? I like your poem as usual. Peace!

I enjoyed the poem but honestly I went many ways with it and in the end it was still over my head but in a positive way.
