  • I needed a pallid distraction
    To make the distinction
    Between claiming my sins
    And dispelling myths. I bowed
    And welcomed your wrath
    Like I deserved the guilt.

    I was surprised that I got out
    Alive, if not in one peace,
    Like the morning after a bottle
    Of Soco and a caffeine crash:
    Sticking to the shadows like a roach
    With too much to live for.
