Pretend by C. J. Clark

After long, hot days

Of careful breathing

Heaven waited

In the white light

Of believing

The eyes of joy

Would soon shut tight

Around soft wing beats

Of silence in flight,

Still, the earth

Would hold me here

Without a friend

My only comfort

This world of Pretend.
