“But, said as angels for the good man’s sin,

 Weep to record, and blush to give it in.”

~ Thomas Campbell, Pleasures of Hope (pt. II, l. 357)

 

“Sin is whatever obscures the soul.”  ~ Andre Gide

 

 

lesser evil

 

no time to assemble

dismantled appendage

frost settles inside

paralyzed bones

loose carnage      defiled virgin

we all fall under the spell

greed tightens around our loins

but how far will we go

to speak in skin-walker tongue

it just depends

it depends

which stars we take

down

            with

                        us.
