i am obsessed with sin the failings of myself and whoever else slips into my line of sight

eight sins

i am obsessed with sin

the failings of myself and whoever else slips into my line of sight

and i scrawl greed and lust into old schoolbooks

i carve gluttony and sloth into the tree i climbed when i was eight

i scribble wrath on the bathroom wall

i smear pride in lipstick on the mirror

i scratch envy into the door of my childhood room

my mother tells me “you’re going to have to stop hiding from the world”

i say “i will”

and it occurs to me

that out of every sin i have ever written spoke sung snarled screamed

not once

(not yet)

have i written of deceit
