Start Shivers Awake

Somber blues fade evening light
Pastel-pinkened clouds spread sighs
Sandy shadows lost to night
Photoshop can’t fix a life

Reflections meld a flush of shame
Tangled webs of doubt, self-blame
Composite mettles, oxygen
Awareness will begin again

Saltwater smell, steaming tar
Insults rile, opponents spar
Time alone collecting change
Cold rain on your neck
Start shivers awake
