Boxed in

the day is done
the party is over
hard work takes us over again

once was a man
fell foul of the crows
tending his sheep
flinging stones
he forgot his place
on the page
while asleep
they pecked out his eyes
blind and worse unseeing
stumbling through the field of boxes
story of his own making
fretfully seeking ways out
which led inward
