Rookie (Richmond, VA)

Bitter Ice


Liquid reflections mock my pleas
In silken voices that taunt and tease

I hear the vexing cry of my soul's own keen
As I am caught within this tangled skein

Gazing into the distant looking glass eyes
I am pierced by a hate that electrifies

So I try to find some kind of veritable sign
Within those eyes that peer inside

But my eternal demise is all I descry
As I am bathed within these white-washed lies

And so the final note has been sung
As I fall to the side of equilibrium

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
