The Curse

I cursed Ezra 
and now he is 
                    following 
                me
                        everywhere 
                  I
                           go

Pound by Pound 
He is stalking my movements 
classics are not always good

We set those upon pedestals 
Idols to false gods 

Cantos Cautiously Casting Coveting 

Shadows, cancers in nature 
                             upon me 
Every shelf filled with him 
the cursed have seen better days 

He was bought and now he is returned 
to the bins and shelves of the used 
the forgotten 
Masters to some,
stale browned confusion to others...
