waiting for the next turn

©2023 michael raven

marrow weary and waiting
for that long dark come

nothing much more on offer:

they have already taken
their pound of flesh
and i have no tales
left to sell

wraith wraith wraith
a ghost in the grinder
if only there were
troubadour songs left
in this empty shell
even so, there are
no ears left to hear

slumbering now, silent
until the next
turn of the wheel
