MERCY

Hats have dropped
Now
from my wall
Time soft-
I am
No longer Tall
Red shoes click
I am shocked
The landscape has been cleared
In a heartbeat
Without a sound

I used to sing
I used to be Fierce
about Everything
Here at Fifty-three
I’ve woken up

Prayers
Have Failed
The Kingdom’s not come
Even Judas
doesn’t kiss or smile
Anymore at Anyone

The Cheshire cat
let the finches Live today

A starting place
perhaps for Mercy
Seeks a homebase
in my Heart
