Wild Vows

by Nat Hall

You don’t want to hurt me,
but see deep how the bullet lies*

.

Before lone gods,
mice and strange priests,
we hunted down our wildest
vows,
I, da daughter of
nobody,
you,
the stringman
in love with chords…
But as we put words in a cage,
they grew feathers, talons and taste for
blood and flesh.
I carried mine on nameless hills,
through sly mires,
peat bogs,
cold swamps;
you long drowned yours
inside poison you always took for
night’s nectar, and
walked away,
………….walked away,
………………….. walked away.

No need to throw stones in the wind,
I walk though life…
