Night's Cover

Cover Image

I leave my lover's home

under cover of night,

but night offers no cover.


Bright lights in the sky,

the stars' shine could

confuse the Magi,

lead them not to their savior

but to a man

not worth saving.


The clouds look like waves

that crash over me like guilt,

always too late;

the hills roll endlessly

like the boulder of

Sisyphus; such should be

my penance.


The sky is full of romance

but I have had my fun;

I have nothing left

but a sleepless night,

a restless life,

a cuckquean wife.
