Wander blind away from
Thebes, where guilt
breaks. It is there
where hearts refuge 
& understanding deepens
in the darkness 
    
That chokes the infinite 
mind. Do not
despair here over the 
begging grip of 
the betrayed and innocent 
who desperately hold 
    
Fragments of squalid decay.
They are ambivalent ghosts
pressing with violence
on paths made
for treading softly. 
    
She wanders there too
with a collection 
of me.  Find her 
& breathe.
