Pragmatic

byThe_Fool©

Sands of grain
Grains of sand
Stream from a closed hand
Streaming from the hand
Downward
Ground-ward.

Mindless activity to occupy my mind
Doesn’t.

What piece of me did you rip out?
A pound of flesh;
Desire,
Drive,
Gone with it.

Pragmatic reasoning
Is unreasonable.

Don’t ask me to think
Because my thoughts
Scratch out broken
Against the needle
Repeating as required
Bitter elixir
Mixed with tears.
