171st Weekly Poetry Contest winner: Inverted King of Wands

by Johann F. Potgieter

I met a man, a kind man
A kind wife, a kind son
A kind daughter of his own.
But the stars were not aligned
The stars were dust motes
Emenations - flakes of used up skin.
Though words had brought me to him
A story I once wrote
Even words must one day fail.

Ashes! Ashes!
We all fall down!
