Today is a day of atonement

But not for me

Sins course through my body

And find no escape

I am a chunk of salt

Stuck on the rim

Of my glass house

Getting plenty of licks

Yet, I never get off

My heart catches my breath

Holding it long and deep

Inside its airless chambers

Before turning it to tears

That dry…

Into even more salty chunks

I live a life of deceit

By anyone’s Measure

And it is a heavy weight

If only I


throw myself


I can’t
