Vardøger

Vardøger

by Cam M. Roberts

 

You
good-doer
you
go-getter
your spirit
lusters
all around
but the ideal light
seen
in sleep
pursued
in dreams
does it
replenish
you?

 

What say your ambitions —

 

1st born
children
thistledown towards
old age
grey
into the grave
deposited in dirt
departing the earth
the earliest
worm.
