‘shadows of cadavers’

finally the sun has set on my landscape
for so long it never quite dropped below the horizon
just hanging… throwing all into gloom
i have circled around and around
going nowhere
simply gathering abrasions from the gnarled tree branches

long shadows fall from the cadavers hanging on my clothesline
they sway in the breeze
grinning their broken-toothed smiles at me
as they watch me sink into the mire

even the crows know
but they are powerless
and after gazing upon my hopelessness for a time
with their black pearl eyes
they take flight… off to find some warm morsel
and i am left alone once more
