An aftermath

An aftermath is the burnishing reminder of
     latency in
             in past confirmations of leaden
tasks groping
     a laggard
             that revels in annihilating, in
brunting the
hope of some
     and minding
     the gashes
             of a lifetime’s revealing clots
of hunted blood
some of which
     can re-trickle the hearth giving it an odd semblance to the poet’s last words uttered in silence.
