There was a soul-searching 
after a negative assassination
tearing my past, my future.

Beneath the burden 
lies the mountain of bail-outs.
You don’t feel whole
in shadows of countings.

The borders were breached 
for lavish darkness
alive under the full moon.

Was it a flight risk in a swan 
lake, when you were
taking a dive to pluck the 
erupting fire of indictment.
