81810: Missive #13

Now as forever as always the same. So much wasted thought and obsessing over evasive signs he sent. Grow into each other. Each props up the other and pretends it’s what he dreamt.

Would you crawl on your belly for me?

Martyr, lay me down and show me I’m your church now. Pray for me. Go down. When I came, I ran to you. Always the same; I’m feeling weak.

Pledge allegiance and speak no truth. Loyal soldiers speak to no one: march on.

Forget all the silence; let it ring out.

There is another way home.
