..from THE ESCHATOLOGICAL DOG… ‘Accepting The Challenge’

It’s not meant to be an old trick. I
found myself, finding
No formula for words to please.

You cannot heal the deaf god.
Consult the lists
of dialog,
obituary notices your spirit keeps.

I came to it broken,
a full stop:
never knowing there already was
no avenue of retreat.
