A Day is a Battle by Ryan Vallee


One day maybe

The counter-production

Begged for by compressed nerves

Will sail away on calm waters.

Maybe relief will breathe into

The tense cables that cobweb

My frame like those of dark

Attic corners.

Maybe I can exhale freedom finally.

Maybe one day strength will plant

A foot upon the fallen and raise

A fist to the sky.

But for now, small victories

Will have to do.
