And here we are, day in and out
taking the horns by the bull
blowing hard, hearing nothing
getting furious, never fast.
We go roughly into good nights
minting daylights, missing twilight
fighting hard with burning candour
flailing softly on dying candles.
Yet strive we must
we are beaten and burst we must
unlike beaten berries and all that sum
but like lightning tousled clouds before a storm.
