I knew there would be days like this;
the clock crawling across the wall,
depression in the sky,
only memories to fill the time
I hoped to use for writing,

so I leave the silence

to which I sign my name

noting the time exactly
when the first drop of darkness
falls in the yard where the birds
have been calling
since dawn.
