Frayed bits of the sky

are fluttering down soundlessly.

An afterthought, the sun

glows dimly in a forgotten corner.

Immense slabs of clouds push and jostle

each other mercilessly.

People, at long last weary of

carrying their memories, try

using them as stilts and crutches.

As for you, you keep your head down,

being quite careful not to look

anyone in the face.
