ranking my beliefs
by the harm they may cause –
the burning monk
forever emblazoned
on my retinas

  watching news
of torture & murder
of innocents
we boil the eggs
of birds for breakfast

    tightly bound
i loosen
a few knots –
a murder of crows
patrols the yard

crow’s feet
at the corners of her eyes
she says
no way anything
can be that funny

  I give in
if someone tried to kill me
I might just let them

a cracked plate, a waste
you don’t want to understand

    my skin splits
from scratching –
the brief pleasure
in satisfying my need
to cut her down
