Happy new winter's day

jaxx sullivan

8 January 2024

Awakened gently 

an all-round sad glow

beside my head

arousing my slumber

I place a new number 

one more digit

on the wall in my kitchen

my eyes don’t feel it

my mind doesn’t see it

in the garden, everything sleeping

the droplets of rain

plonk their light weight down 

heavy from the heavens

the sticks and stones are still

no broken promises to myself 

I make not one

too dark and dank 

to be something new

or anything more

than it’s served up to be.
