Dawn

A Poem by Cole Hayley


Dawn

Get off work
Late 
First blood of blue
Drawn on the night 

I crumble like a statue 
In unpredictable ways 
My bed my tomb 
Day breaks in my room

I can't sleep
I try 
I think of her 
I think of our boat and our children

Love the way it ends.

The other parts are rather intense, maybe even macabre (blood/night/statue/tomb)

But it ends with an almost domestic landscape...children on boats

And those tend to be the moments which pull our heartstrings most.
