from The half​-​life of a gleam by starfish64




Sullen looks and tired eyes
On the train back home
January’s most despicable face
Suburban shades of decline

New year’s resolutions
Demolished and shattered
All the best intentions
With the half-life of a gleam

Faded gravities from bygone years of battle
Where armoured concrete buildings outlast all protest

Dreary suburbs dull grey skies
Sleepless from dusk ‘til dawn
Haunted shadows hurry through the twilight
Begging for a relief
With a half-life of a gleam
