Shadows of Abandon

Shadows of Abandon

written by: Edward L. Canavan



falling visions
from once where
we stood

unearthed abundance
in the unease of gathering

the spaces between the light
rest in the peripheral

center stage of the psyche

comprehension is elsewhere
no need in the vertigo of operation

breath returns
as crowds disperse

small talk silenced

the dust of existence
expelled from the bellows

making way
for the solitude
so desired.
