Hexed

Born under a bad sign,

verses time recalled

harder luck and trouble,

 moments trapped and stalled

 

Born under a bad sign,

rock of ages sold

answers stay unquestioned,

bells no longer toll


Born under a bad sign,

darkness settles in

rumors take the place of truth,

wages buying sin

 

Born under a bad sign,

desperate to belong

days belay what lies conscript,

wordless—heartless—gone

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2022)
