Flash
By Hazel Hall
 
From “Repetitions”

I AM less of myself and more of the sun;
The beat of life is wearing me
To an incomplete oblivion,
Yet not to the certain dignity
Of death. (They cannot even die        5
Who have not lived.)
                    The hungry jaws
Of space snap at my unlearned eye,
And time tears in my flesh like claws.
 
If I am not life’s, if I am not death’s,
Out of chaos I must re-reap        10
The burden of untasted breaths.
(Who has not waked may not yet sleep.)
