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.
