His Ego


It saddens me

to see you triumphant


wooden blocked

and sliver scaled


Thrashing and running

Thrashing and running


Your daughter

when she sleeps


Your wife

when she dies


Your sister

when she stops


Your lover

when she sways


Your mother…


Your mother

when she sees you



silver scaled


and she smiles.
