the knife

every child of god
wants to be the one
that saves us from whatever
destruction we seek
to make 
the charlatans and
carpetbaggers 
plead guilty
in the holy of holies
but even they are not allowed
behind the curtain of a stage
where every child of god
performs for kings of masks
with no applause.


you lived
you lived but you
never died
for warm hearts
pumping lava.


Y O U L I V E D
butyouneverdied
because breathing whispers
can break the
p

of the earth.


you lived, yes
but have you died?


don’t ask me for the knife
for it is corroded


don’t beg me for the
KNIFE
for it will halt at the chest
before it can penetrate
the heart.


some wounds
can only be ripped
a  p  a  r  t
by your own hands.
