Melancholia by Jenny Xie

The black dog approaches?
I pry open the crooked jaw.
A heady odor, elemental.
And then?
I spin through my life again.
How so?
Slow and fast, fast and slow.
What follows?
Time, the oil of it.
What direction?
Solitude throws me off the scent.
And what lies ahead?
Even the future recoils, long as it is.
What points the finger?
All of my eye's mistakes.
And what were they?
