for the elder Mr. Riles


lost your fight
now travel light
by my side
lose the chains
the gates are swinging
out wide

is it easier now?
is this how you wanted?
curtains that won't open

"I grew spare and silent
it clouds the air
so I close my mouth
and I lived off your cast-offs
carry your debt in my name"

there's a word
for what you've done
there's a name
for what you've become
