I do not understand time. 

Blasting through the stone edifice
Poisonous regret thickens the plot
I’m a lonesome, outdated pirate

The stained glass mirrors no tears
As Christ guards us like a shark
I slept with the enemy out of guilt

The clearing in the wood bleeds
An inferno of thirst beckons to us
Mary Magdalene the truest disciple

Bursting forth from this chrysalis
A new world revealed forthwith
The hoar frost befriends the fence.

Charles Cicirella
