• Tash Nikol

Everyone is off?

Submission to No Dear.


They’ve been off for awhile.

Not like batteries to charge,

but a systemic death.

An electric clock

once the tick has stopped —

everything within

has powered down.

The flame that once burned toward

all inborn desires put out.

Intentions empty, an onward journey

though their coast is comatose.
