Outside, the Dark Clouds Move SlowlyTo Tyler Clay's next piece

Stench and shed skin
Flakes still hanging
Before someone else
Stepped up and the line
Edged forward
Infinitesimally down
And to the left
Until the effects of
Me were unknown
Back where I thought
Things changed the most

A breath is passed
From somewhere
In all directions
We can hear the babies

Gnawing the air in my spine

My heartbeats overlap
With a back
That has never seen me
Though I must be here

And outside
Shadows grow longer
Until they've walked
The world (and
Judged it
A thousand times)
