May 2016
when you have watched me all my life
and never warned of ashes in the west,
our prodigal son that returns again
my unrepentant lover lies in sallow skin
silhouettes only dance at night

the sun never sets in the east, but china she
screams from the earth when you leave me
wondering if warmth burns like ice or fire
with both hands smiling, you drive it all
a stake through my heart

father, my samson
home is four walls of the lion’s den
mother, my delilah
home is four walls of the lion’s den

all I know is sacrifice.
