On Hope vii

when will this sadness end?

she asked, because she knew it must

we both could feel the cold lump of it

in our stomachs, welding us together

when we are both happy?

I offered, to see how happy might sound

it sounded like a bowl of tears

a set of randomly selected letters

it reprised the call of an albatross

fatally wounded

On the Road VI

Spelling aside, it

looks like this chase is over.

Hope you’re happy now
