Sonnet for Tunnel 29

Days may collect black teardrops in a can,

rendering the night to twitch, turn and crawl.

Rivulets can quell the dreams of a man, 

from taking chances, to plunder his all.

 

I’m told streams wind themselves to a river,

that David Bowie came here to get clean.

To converge is the current of the giver,

to stagnate, the language of the mean. 

 

‘No Mans Land’ is a field where tourists thieve.

They snap photos and buy cheap souvenirs.

They'll never know that you dug underneath, 

through a stinking ditch to drown all the years.

 

I want to see you standing by the wall. 

I won't allow memorials to fall.
