ONE MORE CRIME TO COMMIT
(9/20/14)


condemned
and condoned
throughout endless
cycles of complicity

I weary
of the repetition

I weary
of the routine

but during
this most recent
limbo
of limited
acceptance

I sweat

I simmer

feeling
undone

feeling
as if
I've been saved
for one last
cataclysmic
atrocity
to be unleashed
upon an unsuspecting
populace

I see
their eyes

they look
upon a graying
nearsighted
stoop shouldered
dying man
and sense
no danger

therein
lies
such a prodigious
surprise

murder?

mayhem?

marriage?

miracle?

there is
just
enough time

just enough
energy

for one
final
profanity

one final
providence

circumstances
will dictate
the direction
of the outcome

I must
simply
be prepared
for the opportunity

free floating
in destiny
I need only
to grasp
the next
welcoming hand
of tomorrow
