Mockingbird Deboned

Ye cursed with too much knowledge,

all fate’s within your grasp

The destiny of all beguiled

entrenched behind your mask


To Thee of grace outstanding,

the rose and bud the same

Beginnings end as endings start

assumptions die unclaimed


Oh Ye who brave the mountain,

its winds blow far and chill

Each footstep placed a sin erased

the moment frozen still


And Ye who share the journey,

all mockingbird’s deboned

Your wisdom marks a trail unseen

—for others to atone


(Las Vegas Airport: July, 2022)
