Nights dark beyond darkness and the days more gray
Each one than what had gone before
Dust and ash everywhere
Charted and limbless trunks of trees
Stretching away on every side

Ash moving over the road
And the sagging hands of blind wire
Strung from the blackened lightpoles
Whining thinly in the wind

The shape of a city stood in the grayness
Like a charcoal drawing sketched across the waste

Nothing to see
The cold and the silence
If only my heart were stone
No sign of life

The blackness she woke to on those nights
Was sightless and impenetrable
A blackness to hurt your ears with listening

No sound but the wind in the bare and blackened trees

She rose and stood toffering in that cold autistic dark
With her arms outheld balance…

Grey flakes falling out of nothing
