While listening to everyone but myself,
  failing to take my own advice


I married the widow of dark consensus,
  betrothed to darkness—divorced of light


I followed her blindly into the cave,
  where the leopard of ignorance roamed

And watched as the demon devoured my words,
  unholy banquet—all verses deboned

(Villanova Pennsylvania: July, 2017)
