Taxi man

the road i cannot drive on
the apartment cannot prolong

the tires forever enveloped,
and the enginge rusted in the
molden insides of the blizzard.
The flame has faultered
in the cavernous depths of the below,
extinguished by the light above.

In the limbo between realms
no place to call home.
