Gnarled Sleep

Gnarled Sleep

I seep under the

moon’s reflections

in a body worn and withered

as a tree gnarled in dreams sleep.

Trapped inside,

why is it I hear

the child’s

cry – endlessly – meaninglessly?

It is a self clinging

to deep gulfs,

to go where cries,

are smothered,

in different directions,

tugging all that is unknown.
