Light flutters

Over your face

Like dusty

Moths’ wings


Into the darkness

That wraps its

Itchy cloak

Around scratchy


Stoic stubble

Forgotten for days

Rises up

Razor- less and undefeated

It crazes the mirror

Into a thousand

Careless gazes

That stare blankly,

Dumb to the words

On paper,

Devoid of meaning.
