Syrup

come gather

all ye disciples of despondency

fine purveyors of hurt

..

come hither

and gather by my light

as it burns and inhales

your pristine pathos

..

i’ll collect your brittle bark, shedding

your crumbling edifice of self

so raw, so cherished

and with your sycamore soul thus exposed

sit beside you

seeking your sugared self

spile driven deep

a spigot set to seep

your syrup

oh so

sweet
