The Never


The Never

When
for years
no one has touched
your skin
or hugged you,
it's then you know
you are dead

A defeated magic
touches your lips
as the heart
fails to kiss
the inner walls
of a chest
filled with a vacuum

The never
takes over
one windless day
at a time
spread like tasteless jam
on dry bread
more dust than sustenance


Barry G. Wick
