  2. Gradient (Kyrielle Sonnet) –
    Riffing Eugenia’s “Memories From Afar”

    There was a time, lamp light enticed,
    welcomed home, for time sacrificed.
    Eerie glow followed fog’s descent;
    night sounds of forest, gradient.

    Souvenirs spliced, tethers severed;
    salvage intended, endeavored.
    Back to square one, all too frequent,
    night sounds of forest, gradient.

    Taught to follow blindly, a code,
    late for this final episode.
    If I could only circumvent,
    night sounds of forest, gradient.

    There was a time, lamp light enticed,
    night sounds of forest, gradient.

    Michael Todd (2020)
