Midnight and Thirty

midnight and thirty
knocking of knuckles behind the drums
the build uncertain and frazzled
to crisp rapping
to silence

in the silence
the weeds grow
the soft, subtle swamps croak in
water freezing in cracks and worries
a thick line of sediment
separating me
defining me
i take my spoon
and begin to tap tap tap
at the dirt
