LAMENT – a poem from Minus One

LAMENT

“My mouth is stretched –

A soundless wail of anguish

For the sorrows of the world

An eye into hell

In the corner of my room

Cry out your lamentations

Prostrate yourselves

And weep, and weep, and weep.”

I wrote this poem long ago, but I am revisiting it now for Ukraine. What’s happening there is inconceivable.
