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.

back to black

black souls like black holes

 are

shaded in mystery

and

deprived of glow

albeit

present from the beginning  of history

they’ll be the last known

when words not only contain meaning but transmit feeling they can even render healing

if you’re thinking

you’ve yet to do your best work,

you’re putting time to the test

which if not waste will only result in the worst…
