SOLAR ATTRITION
(5/20/10)


we share
the same sun
every day
you and I

we share
the same sun
but you want
me to die

what sears
your soul
a world away
heating
so much hate
to the surface?

certainly not
the same sun
that warms me
making me feel
at one
with you

the things
that last forever
we share
together

only
transitory insanity
keeps us
at odds

I see you
there
when I see
the same sun
shining
with the light
that birthed
us both

we share
the same sun
but you give
me
no right

we share
the same sun
I will kill
you
at night

the moon
will be mine
alone
