i can only smile


he is free to commiserate

with the enemy

the drowsy call of faux spirituality

blissfully beneath me

he only has eyes for being baptized

so let him drink the holy water

over the honeyed wine

a partner in crime won’t be found

in ugly hounds

it’s the foxes who pick locks

on second thought

a crow should’ve known

there’s no reason to mourn

for bittersweet thorns

let him burrow

on the losing side

for this

is a chosen plight

and i

can only smile
