[2 October 2019]

A craving for something
more, a hunger for beauty (consume
or be consumed), a denial of transience,
pinning down the ephemeral, a growing
restlessness, quiet through the
night, an note elongated
a moment too long (I heard
it once, long ago),
a drop in pitch, wavering,
dissonant, suspended, leading
to a change in altitude, a moment
of weakness, a moment of regret,
dissatisfied, an always
searching for that which
is never mine.
