brink and teeter

brink and teeter

nominal approach
amidst the expected disarray

empty vessels
side by side

softly into the heavy night
as blank screens stare back wide
and beauty seems beyond reach
in the blue darkness of our lost ways
all the ways up
and more to fall

these walls climb my dreams

down from mountains
the sky released

as all beneath is washed away
and we sing with laughter.

Edward L. Canavan is an American poet whose work has been published in The Opiate, Harbinger Asylum, and Cholla Needles. His first poetry collection titled Wreck Collection was recently released by Cyberwit Press.
