A Beggar’s Song

My last attempt

to circle the square

anger takes the throne



no longer to share

servitude alone


Wandering unsure

things left unsaid

words to disappear


Into the dark

deserted forlorn

heightening my fear


The ladder broken

every rung

unable now to climb


Direction gone

a beggar’s song

—with nothing left to find


(Valley Forge Pennsylvania: October, 2020)
