Dispossess

A breeder of dissent – dumb luck I guess
Cornered, reluctant to speak,
I’ve climbed the bell tower
for better acoustics
Below, a crowd – above, black clouds

With forever out of easy reach
my blood pools and hardens
and the devil falsely claims victory

Shamed, but well beyond defeat
– cool , calm and collected –
no one has dominion over me
