the Teeth of the Winds of the Sea

..Why I have failed?
And all I could have been
And am not
And all I had hoped for
And were not
And everything I hoped
And hoped and hoped and hoped for
I prayed in the morning
And I prayed in the evening
And I got not
From the rotgut God
When all the world starts to shiver
And shimmer and shake all around me
And all the world light was piecemeal and peaceless
This is the atomic pain of the world
The molecular tears
The final crystalline structure of misery
That wind it's way around the wooden snakejawed growing spine
Of the worlds..
