Restless Night

Night,

windless and silent

 

Our dogs bark at imagined threats,

they pace watchfully

 

I lay awake

with the worms

of needless thoughts

spiralling through my head

Their dark intent

rattles old memories,

stirs the harbinger

of unresolved disputes

 

Snails slide glistening paths

of the irreconcilable

 

It is a trouble night.
