October Collage Poem: Sacrifice

entry picture

People die for what they say - a sacrifice

I would say.


Promises unfulfilled in darkrooms


my pen massages,

carefully and lovingly

the waiting page.


She is everywoman: sacrifice, laughter, death.


U kip I kip we all kip


running saved her life

she is all giving


the painting of the dog, howling


she is all-giving, all-taking, all-loving

crying in vain

taking it all away


secret bookshop

in the pages of time:

How often has my spirit turned to thee!
