 SEEDS OF GROWTH by Pam

OH, CRY THE SOUL



Oh, cry the soul
whose heart is
spindled in spider webbing
or jarred into
an airless flask
of bitter wine
or mounted
on a breathless painting
imagined to life
from brushes of pigments and turpentine
or pierced by
cactus- spiked words
to poisonous ends
or martyred to the fate
of a hangman's noose
or forgotten and marked
"John Doe" on a census chart
or found still as stone
inside a rocking chair
alone and iced
born to live and die
a loveless life.

Oh, cry the soul
