Looking down at my hands
at the neat and defined space they now occupied in
the fluorescent jelly of the night bus interior
it suddenly sedimented in me
the dawning of cessation : the settlement of reality
and its end - now actually inevitable

no more " you never know " futures

no more " hit the Undo Button"

no more " room for improvement"

“rosy potentials”

there was only “no more”

and this was it

as I drape my heart around you and become sick
to combat side by side with you
gallant, strong, in empathy and hope for transference unto me
as the holy spirit, thy blood becometh mine own

and every breath and thought
I tousle nightly over
keeping the darkness at bay
lance at the ready
duel at the challenge
gauntlet drop
and stake


which I have control over


from Truth BeTold, released March 23, 2018
