Debtor

My debt is unforgivable
and accrues with the
dawn of each new day
This breath I have
borrowed and two dead
eyes
lessees of sight
while others are blind
Two hawks I saw today
Side-by-side
Lifelong mates
How can I repay
such a sight?
These few miserly rhymes
barely interest

Who?

Who will those who claim
to trod the narrow vein of
righteousness choose to blame
once they get what they want
and nothing changes
except the size of the
debt the rest of us
can’t pay

Who?
Who?

Maybe me
Maybe you
