Crimes of the Heart

Poet Rummager

Illustration byTed Giffin

Here in the dark I sit.

Polishing my sins

with a rag and spit.

No matter how hard I rub,

the patina never succumbs.

Encrusted with smudge,

it’s difficult to shine.

Woe festers underneath skin –

A soul burdened with crimes

of the heart.

Handcuffed and caged

with unyielding bars.

Cast away the key.

My penance will stretch an eternity.
