Crosses pierce the screen, 

spatter the sky

silhouettes of tree, people the rust

into holes and a sinking heart

that heals methodically into polluted air.

These are the words that hide mistakes made in books and on stages. Where good work or good intention scatters into the black abyss of forgettable.
