Undoing

The selvedge unravels. 

 

The sand in the hourglass sighs. 

 

The defence is helter-skelter;

who can even speak of shelter?

 

The soloist cedes the spotlight, 

hounded by a crowd's appetite.

I love the line
The sand in the hour glass
Sighs
So eloquent!

I really can't argue with your interpretation, Stephen, a world falling apart indeed! 😎

I read this many times, Holden. Perhaps a world falling apart?
