The Canticle

The Canticle is an epic poem that I began writing in 1997. It surely will never completely end. Here, I share what I have written thus far for the first time. CLICK THE TEXT BELOW TO SEE THE PIECE IN ITS ENTIRETY. Enjoy

The Canticle
by Jason J. Loya

Underneath the pink umbrella
lies an unsuspecting criminal.
Is it even appropriate to
offer any sentiment?
Alone -- a loss
a brief confusion
Alone -- beyond
without a motion
He sits there slyly smiling,
deeply craving loneliness
but all's not well because if it were
the falling sky would breathe in tune...
