  • Mood:
I've laid you to rest,
But unquiet
The memory-corpse
Has been restless
And chafed raw I brace myself
To stake you
Behead you
And burn your remains,
ROsemary in remembrance
Of so-long cruelty.

But
Some photostatic memory
Some molecule of kindness
Twenty years gone
Begs for a stay of execution
And this self-brought second-thought
Makes a fatal breach in my armor,
And you escape me
In my Hamlet moment
Of weakness and grief
For a phantom of love
So long gone
I could have been asleep, perchance a dream,
And still it is a point
That gores and transports poison
That shows, yes shameful
Shows my silver tarnished
My steel rusted
My honor murdered-
Sacrilege
