40 DAYS
(11/21/15)


in the beginning
the duration seems
interminable

the first
week
drags

but we know
from past experience
that we shall be
on the other side
in no time

each sunrise
illuminates
a new anticipation

the sunsets
however
are a different
story

eventide
extinguishes
our enthusiasm

shadowing us
in doubt

we most consider
the possibility
of death
in the darkness

those 40
nights
can be
a killer
