TANGLED by John D Robinson

TANGLED

 

Shapes blended,

bodies wrapped

and tangled like

barbed-wire,

time had

temporarily

stopped in the

sparse cheap

rented room,

the invisible

calendar shredded

and strewn

across the floor

like the

abandoned clothes

of lovers:

evening would

envelope them

and morning

would release

them into a

world unaware

and uncaring

of their fading

silhouettes.
