diary of a twisted primate

a scandalous secret gnaws
at the epicenter of my being
threatening to unearth
score pillars of dirt
upon which my world is built

gilded in reverence,
vaingloriously lauded
and parlayed to ascend sacred rungs
beyond the license of minions,
the legend grows
and grows
and grows

and though I know
my storied steeple,
as all things crooked,
will surely crumble someday,
I pray that it shall stay

erect

an irreverent crown;
a reaming tower of pisa
steeped in piety,
the envy of my faithful throng

preserved

to shatter the innocence of your delicate young…

~ Pablo
