this nagging knowingness

A clippety clop it goes

a clippety clop it goes
this nagging knowingness

a drip-dropping aloneness
a still-of-night remoteness

a head-flopping heaviness
this nagging knowingness

a shrunken world below us
a carved-out hollowness within us

this socketless electricity 
this unyearned-for-loss 

a clippety clop it goes
a clippety clop it goes
this nagging knowingness

it can end

this nagging knowingness it can end

  1. I read this poetry like it was written for me…amazing, Brendan. So perfect with the image. Inspired work!! And I don’t mean it to sound like life is so bad…it’s just I can so relate to what you wrote, that’s all.
