#201 (discarded)

once more

I wake up at night

 darkness wraps me tight

yet my eyes pierce

the umbra shadow

of an old lamp

resting forgotten

discarded in the clutter

of broken things

and broken memories

quaint seems the shape

of the odd thing

my fingers reaching out

to touch ancient brass

and torn canvas

returning

recollections of days

I used to spent

nourished by its light

reading through the fables

of gods and mortals

over and over
