shards

by coup contrecoup

dust filled eyes,
scathed & scratched retina,
focused, projected,
shining light forces them
to close,
a wet source of shame-
the cloud of dirt
looms…  moving-
proceed forward,
the path- the trail-
forces of gravity push
and pull.
the pendulum swings.
audible betrayl.
lies transform to a mask.
worn to deliver
mirror like hate.
