A dire Saturday,
Of a dire week,
Of this a dire life.

A sentence
A song
A story
An Alphabet
An Alignment in the stars.

And So I try to try to try to try.
And Failing gives me pleasure.
And Winning gives me nothing.
And Losing gives me something to do.
And Strong storms
And Bleeding hail
And Booming lies
And Thunderous revolts
And So the story goes.

Hate Hate
In time, time.
I dissipate.
In time, time
Crime, Crime
And I sue myself in the court of life
And so I find myself the guilty
The accused victim of himself.
And with time I sentenced him to an eternity of past.
And with hope I sentenced him to a possibility of present.
And with detest he sentenced me to a future with no success.
No end,
No turn,
No attitude,
No Him,
Just Me.
Just I.
Just the holy body I see in me.
Just the demon I blind myself to see in me.
Just Me.
Just me alone.
