Chaffed

His voice weighed heavy

guttural sounds, heaving words

of weighted lead 

Winnowing life to the grain

Chaffed with dark humour 

His eyes smiled; an edge of wisdom 

Gentle with a giants touch 

Wrought from; the fire of life

◄ long and deep

Sagacity ►

That's cool Desmond..there's a guy in my boozer just like that. Occasionally he speaks but mostly he drinks.

I like it.
