a loss for
what comes next
what does?
what do
I do?
I don’t
I sit
in stifled silence
a stupor
a daze
a haze
a phase?
I hope
I try
a flick
a thought
a fight
a struggle
a futile swat
a useless stab
an unsuccessful grab
at clarity
at certainty
at action
no traction
no reason
no clear solution
confusion
contusion?
perhaps.
