Year

by
Emma Nabarro-Steel

Our years stack-up
As geological periods
Memory, a slice into rock

Where sadness tries to be a fossil
Cheerfulness wants to bleed
up through layers

But learns the path of gravity
through fine sands of sorrow
easily blown across the stroke of midnight.

We just need a year
A mingling of sediment
Where the ratio is alright
