pending confirmation
unknown

And what will you do after I have gone
 1
 
 
Will you collapse under a pile of our photos
 2
paralyzed and hoarse
 3
from pleas to the universe
 4
for a reversal, postponement or
 5
temporary pardon.
 6
 
 
Will you take others hostage
 7
out of spite or compensation
 8
and hold their faith and gods
 9
to an impossible ransom.
 10
 
 
Will you burn our house down
 11
until all our secrets are scorched
 12
because memory is torture
 13
and self destruction too private and prolonged.
 14
 
 
Or will you take to the freeway
 15
until the world becomes a blur,
 16
transient hallucination,
 17
your sins unrecognizable
 18
my departure impossible
 19
to confirm.
