TELLOS

It is the last hour before
The body's failure will swamp
The struggling mind in dreaming sleep;
And a dull fly, a single one
Of daylight's swarming insect drift,
Swats the silence across the ceiling
As it blats and bumbles into a personal oblivion.
You might almost think
The seas of Tellos froze.
