forgiveness

all of my pain has threatened to kill me

but in failing, decided to swing the ax down upon the memory of itself

memory: a broken thing beady eyes blinking wild

and called that mercy.

mercy: a funeral in the night with no mourning.

but we, necromancers, our hands always reach into dirt,

we want something.

we call that something truth.

every time i bring up the body of memory /

it is less a wet and yielding thing.

grows hard and dry in the dark.

is eaten. shrinks

something else grows.

a lightness begging

to become nothing.
