Ripple effects

Photo by Ardalan Hamedani on

Oh, tragedies I could have spun 

Into likeness of silk and then sold  

Like some underground merchant 

Just so I could afford myself more 

Of that circle of pass me around  

On the corporate merry go round  

As if a few tokens could suffice  

The unwanted begotten legacy of 

Scars of accompanying bitterness  

That never lets anyone- sleep well  

Learning you’re- your own ghost  

And romantic scenes of sailing off 

On open ocean waters are diluted  

In fogyish daily life of… forgottenness
