Honestly, I'm a Liar, & Other Balances & Imbalances

fleeting thing

I would probably  be able to say,

I  could pray  for  love.

.

“mistakes  got  made.”

That just was spokespeople, just was scripted to say

At press conferences/  when the best of the last vestiges

of subterfuge/  just clears away

Just  faster than the disaster will

.

if only i will…

if only i was able…

miscast

If I’d insist on playing the pacifist

(I’m maybe miscast)

I’d resist being all-too-willing

                                        to killing time.

 

If I would want to resist the persistent praying

For my mercy, for all our mercy,

Inarticulate verses of mercy,

Maybe I’d want to take steps,

I’d want to take things into my own hands, 

Maybe I’d want to take on the task

Of yanking my mask off,

Of thinking of thanking

                                          myself more.

Tho’  I’d  heed  less

Jesus
