AFTER THE TRIAL

Close your eyes dear 
sunshine
My trip I had, my day I spent
Now it is time to hide from 
your presence
My swollen prize of inability 
and shame.

Turn aside to let your less 
curious sister 
come by
For even under her fullest 
glare
I curl in peace and sigh 
goodnight
To enjoy a dream where 
I am king.
But the lingering fear of 
your eyeball
Robs the wine off this 
nocturnal chalice
Still I observe communion in 
piece
And the moon be my 
witness, in peace.
