...Embittered Prophecy...

You've instilled in me

your embittered prophecy

about what my life should

and should not be

I have slid more than

once or twice

down the precipice

of your muted octave world...

drenched in notes of sorrow

soured and screeching across

the highway of my soul

where the sun cannot warm

and the rain cannot chill

my only refuge remains

in the vial of blood

both drawn and flowing

for my own use

withdrawn and examined

by the surgical procedure

that I indeed authorize

for review

and what They find there

is your embittered prophecy

scattered along the fringes

fighting like white against red

a subtle combustion

constantly

painfully

alive
