I cannot be sure,
But tonight may be the night I quit.
I don’t think I’m even being obedient anymore,
Maybe I deceived myself before;
Maybe now I’m throwing a despondent fit:
Both can be equally ignored.
I cannot do it alone-
And why would I without You in it?
Yet for a moment between groans
Hope was upward-winded
But not yet flown
More than tongues and tenets-
Standing in flesh, and feather, and bone-
And I believed.
