Too Crowded


isn’t evidence
but nagging doubt
tenders plagiarised
you’re dead

very buried in fact
though you breathe
with fair reparation
from a past you’d
rather forget

a bright light
on the horizon
reflects flame from
a pyre to no-one
in particular

it’s where you’re
at, nowhere, but
you’ll be leaving
soon – it’s already
too crowded...
