pour your penance of plum wine
my chalice is wounded but thirsty
you haven’t yet run from your crime
there is time for atonement
I haven’t yet run from the pain
so decant yourself, empty your shame
give me liquor of purple remorse
let me drink up your penitence
bracing my courage to walk out the door
never needing to ever look back
till that day when I piss on your grave
