The FAB&PP Poem of the Month for June, 2008

gray shadows in my
vision mottled
like the background
radiation of the
            cratered here
and there
over time
     [the portents
     of its passage]


of acuity unaccompanied
by interesting gifts

only shadows
swimming as i
try to seize
the moment
s left

calm enough when
i close my eyes
disturbing as i
open them
               and fight
against the
sheets of day
