DOOM SCARINGS

I shiver

And I don’t know why

I who battled dark quarries

And emerged bathed with light

II

I shiver

And I don’t know why

I who battled with poverty

And won with no debt mark

II

I tremble

And I don’t know why

I who was forced into the anus of the great sick sea

And triumphed with no bloating waters

III

I am trembling

And I don’t know why

I who stood in the face of temptations

And was hugged with triumphant steadfastness

IV

Why do I tremble?

Why am I a scared leaf

After being presented with the ends of a sweet young love

I am vehemently fighting to let lose?

V

You are at work

But you won’t get through me

You who took the sanes of my seed

And seek to break the only I now hold dear

VI

You are at work

But you won’t touch none

None, belonging to my emotions

You scoundrel of a myth!

VI

Fortification from heaven

Great wings from fires feared above

I plead your presence

To cover me and mine as you burn the debris
