didn’t even love,in a place with no telephone,
Was it worth thirty plus years of harrowing
Grief and guilt.Did you need the excitement?
Writing,too demanding.Real love was certainly
A demand but one you’d think would be
A useful mine for poetry.Sylvia’s love
Too much?And what you thought would be
A few seemingly trivial acts,could have
But isn’t that always so ?
I don’t think Pontius Pilate knew
His name would go down in history
As the Judge of God himself,
Washing his hands like an obsessive,thinking
A ritual would heal him of his guilt
