A Quicking of the Heart Clears the Smoke

From Counterfeit Freedom by Roland F. Stoecker Jr (author's profile)


- A quicking of the heart clears the smoke -

My mind is a funeral pyre of thoughts
All that remains of a fading past,
Charred pieces of paper and ashes
Slowly descend
To settle into the calcified pool of tears
at my feet.
