unhappiness.

Unhappiness
consider me foolish
to refract loneliness in the grooves
of far parallel beds of the familiar;
intercession/neglect, don’t bother.
ladies laugh in photographs,

a fetus across the garden, growing while
I sit at her bedroom window
an age where branches hung themselves Antigone.

  1. At first, I didn’t realize you meant Antigone, the play. Your writings are always so different and thought provoking. I really liked how you started off “Unhappiness, consider me foolish”. Always a pleasure to go through your work and to learn from it, Lucy. Loved this ❤

    Great opening Lucy! It is often silly to retrace loneliness which might impact on our emotions. It is unnecessary to bother loneliness!
