A childhood crucifixion
Haunts this tired fiction.
Your diction destroys me, deep
In my temple with handfuls
Of curtain/I’m certain of nothing so

Body have floated off to,
“I’ll see you soon!” while you drift
Past that varicose face
In the moon.

To the tune of Sweet Caroline, you
Glimmer and shine and
Oh What A Find! you mined and
You mined this tired quarry,
I’ve seen it before and I know
That you’re sorry.
