The Days Bleed Together

pastel_sky_800x200

The days bleed together –
streams of muted colour,
lamp yellow, sky blue,
all washing down
one canvas.

The fading days
divided by broken sleep
with only the flies for company.

Whisky through the night,
and a fridge as empty
as the hole in my shoes.

Two-minute noodles
and electronic music,
quietening the dark
as the colours deepen
and I try not to think of
the looming dawn
of another day.
