Oblivion




Oblivion

In the ignorant spurn of time, each year spinning as balls of yarn toward eternity – they suck the rind, taste the sting on tongue and as focused as housewives hanging fresh laundry fail to notice the fall of subtracting days into the shallow open drawer of life.

  2. Hey Pearl. Quite the image evoked by this, especially, "the fall of subtracting days into the shallow open drawer of life." Although shallow, very deep! So you!

  3. Wow, what an intriguing concept - the days falling into the open drawer of life. Yikes! I'd better speed up, before the drawer closes!

  6. Oh, that drawer really IS shallow, isn't it? And the older I get, the shallower it becomes...

    Powerful image!
