atonement

we all relish
adventure
games

from
     time
        to
time

however,
yours was
one of deception

how many
did you swindle?

you\’re a fraud
beggin\’ on freshly
rained upon streets

a rolled-up daily
conceals pandora\’s
box —  moments
stolen

not need
for worry

the mambo\’s
spirit guides
will track your
evil core

a voodoo
doll captures
your essence
and  all needles
ordered

a vacant heart
from which you\’ve
injured many

give blind eyes
which do not see
anything of purity

weak legs
to throw ones

             b
                a
            l
             a
                 n
            c
                e

unstable arms
not worthy
of a simple
embrace

&

the
final
coup d\’etat

lips now stitched
secured with a thin
silver thread

i don\’t
wish you harm

you\’ve maimed
yourself enough
karma ALWAYS
finds a way
in spite
of the aged
timepiece
with it\’s
decrepit

tick
     ticK
          tiCK
     tICK        
TICK

are “tell-tale hearts”
not wonderful?
