WITNESS

By IACONE

up on
the 39th
a figure
in the
dark looks
out at the
city
the quivering city
never sleeping
wondering what
the new day
will ink
on the page

thinking
a man
must be alive
in this
world
100 years
to be
a decent
witness

All the years
in transit
to the
century mark
where
excellence
awaits a
striving
witness
inking

those endless
decades
inept scratchings
gatherings of
imprecise words
inexacting
expressions of
existence
heart & soul
dredgings

Flagrant images
that make our
pulse pop
hearts weep

Truly all
a witness
can hope
scheme
& breathe
is wine
women
song

and children
be they
flesh and
blood
maybe
poems
paintings
lending
reason
to the
senseless
un-
inked day.
