the black dog

Tuesday 12th January 2021


I have been engulfed

by the black dog


and I have grown colour blind

and numb to all but the cold

that leaks through my window


I have been at peace

but I can’t quite remember it

like a memory from childhood

that you only remember because

someone took a photo of it


and now it’s scorched in your brain

like a still

from an old film

that you’ve never even seen
