Election blues

Election blues

Silence and slow time
in the leaf-fringed garden

lilacs swaying in the breeze
not a bird not a fox to be seen

no melody to delight
the sensual ear

life suddenly passionless
all in abeyance

an empty theatre or at least
one between acts

a world marking time
for heaven’s sake
