the short walk to hell

July 8, 2012 § 3 Comments

is a road
paved with pearls and
like the condemned scratching
unfelt constellations
on walls of a cell
these words I leave
to be found
after I’m free
which road I’ll find myself on
I cannot say
pearls, however, hold no interest
for me
that in itself
may be a good sign
