Daily missive for Friday the 13th of March.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 13th of March.

Stay, foolish heart
In its wish to flee
This sleeve
Does it deign to wear
Itself regally
Carried
Or captivated
By an erotic
Charge of imprisonment
A biased observer
Barred from leaving
Though barely aware
Of the ease
With which
Freedom can be bartered
Life is no escape
Death is
Forever wary
Of its confinement
And the temptation
To believe
There is an answer
To mortality
In the frequency
Of its invocation
Is a reckless
Preoccupation
Of the fallen
