Acrostic

Did you ever wonder if you maimed
and ravaged with your callous stillness
no articulation of regret or remorse
in thought or word
carried only in the silence of night
and the shadowed hush of dawn
Gods and divinities have abandoned this place
rote lines and memorised psalms
immemorable time licking each second with
flame and gasoline and
flurries of bitter white cold
inside the careless confines of your indifference
there is no empathy or compassion in your
hardened chill
