humour frees the self
poetry sees and tells
music heals and helps

never love

never enjoyed a lover for so long
perfect contours
gorgeous seams

never felt a sensation so strong
when we explore
the makings of dreams

never been this close
so restored
and full of feelings

there’s no worse burden
than a debt of love

when you’re free of them
but your heart owes half

the jealous servant

For some days the king’s servant

would amidst the choirs of the wind

roam the grounds

in search of the royal hound.

 

One evening, upon his return

he said to the king:

sire, what’s been lost I’ve not found

but tomorrow, the day after, and until spring comes as you’ve ordered

I will enquire into this disappearance

but I have a feeling

had that dog true allegiance 

he’d have never left your side

just as I desire to never retire

although you’d rather I spend my days

searching for that ungrateful mongrel.’

 

At this this point the king responded:

‘liar!

I’ll make you regret it

I know you put my pet to death

Confess

or I will have you put down

in the same hole you buried it!’

 

The servant in a desperate attempt to save himself

fell to his knees

face to the ground and said:

‘I did it out of jealousy, not hate.’

 

The king ordered the servant be banished to beyond his kingdom’s gate.
