The Evil of Two Lessers

from by J. Marinelli



The lost year’s blight will never fade from sight
Only the bitters can we sweeten
As we charm ourselves through the shivering dawn
With every new dose of misfortune

Lasso me lazy like the moon
I’ll hang you up in my orbit
Bite the bit we’re bound for nowhere

Soon to hide, din of the Delta ride
Held-over pulse like a crestfallen
Countenance, establish your distance
Now that you’ve blown out every engine

And six months I’ll not be found
Face hidden in broad daylight
Miles away form the lost year’s stomping ground
