After eight days of rain
what isn’t overwritten
under sun. These
pushed further apart.
Eight days without
definition: gray walled
the room in, and I
thought I found a way
to stop thinking—to allow
gray to become a sound
I couldn’t hum myself out of.
All I heard was a window.
A long weed beat
unevenly against it.
