5:00 PM – It is Settled (Hour 9)

residing deep in the places

Where darkness feels

at home

a peace hovers like

the early morning fog

on a humid day

after a night’s  thunderstorm

the moist thick air

clings and coats

and grabs you


a barrier to things

other than calm

dripping with certainty

like death

and rotting flesh

in the dessert sun

stripping to the


bleached white

it is done
