—A Selection from Vagabonds and Sundries

Within your silence, Demon
I hear your surrender.
As you go to your end
And I celebrate my beginning,
We come to the inevitable outcome
Wherein we—both of us—
Reap what we have sown.
This spirit you have starved
Is nourished by the fruition
Of long-held hopes you resented.
And your ego, made fat
By your exploitation of others,
Must learn how to sustain itself.
My life, now reclaimed,
Is no longer your feast.
