Grey by Stephen Daniels

It starts with a slow charge

annoyance after annoyance

a desert of sense

turns into a dust trace

of heavy hooved thumps.


It ends with wrinkled decay of justice

Grey men decide thick sentences

Skin crusts, where once

there was plenty to admire

Horns sound empty regret.
