“Bait”

I walked through the forest

as wind insufflated the trees.

Their cries, though deafening, were mere whisperings to me.

I look at the ground counting stones and broken twigs.

I look for your crown, among the devil’s figs.

Why insist on sleeping when you know night’s dark fate?

Your empty mind is nothing now.

Just the devil’s bait.
