Eyes

Crawling towards the light
Memory and mind
Drowning in peace
Thought spilling out
Staining our linoleum
Both quiet and care

The peace of the forgiven
Gorging on the lies
We tell to ourselves
The better for those others
Both looters and lawyers
To cast within vaults
Of our own eyes staring back
Only our own eyes
To deny us our absolution
With undelivered amnesty
On writs left abandoned
Hands strangely steady

Both quiet and care
Staining our linoleum
Thought spilling out
Drowning in peace
Memory and mind
Crawling towards the light
