NaPoWriMo, Day Seven, Poem Seven





Past Third Fall

Go flog yourself every time 
they don't take your name in vein
 
with the heroes whose words
you mine morning noon night.
 
Take penance for sins nobody
even knows they possess. 
 
Write a real goddamn poem
in self-mutilated palm.

Show it to absolutely no one,
rely on mustard seed faith.
