  • Through the tunnel you go
    surrounded by real and imagined hypocrisies.

    Seething, clawing the air.

    Despair calls,
    agony wills you motionless
    and blessings for the antichrist abound.

    Weeping marble
    on a necessary passage.

    I was there
    (though you would not believe it)
    I was there,
    now I am here, and
    do my best to keep the tunnel safe
    for you,

    beautiful child.
