If you have found this
you have found a voice
which no longer lives

in my throat
and if you have found this
you have found my
unbearable burden

let it float
this heavy poison

Atlas abandons the earth
with as much tenderness
into the universe
as he once lifted it
mounted with grace

let it go

let the poison
dab out your river days
let it
form your watercolour nights

spreading, flowing
dark as ink.
