Tension: A Line Drawn Taught
I am a tyrant.
I yielded her harvest so decent.
I play at decent.
I gorge on her harvest like a tyrant.
I am engorged; a tyrannical decency.
I yield to her harvest.
A yielding tyrant who harvests what she gorges –
Harvesting her “play at decent”,
yields her as a tyrant.
Decency of a tyrant!
Do I yield? Does she harvest?
Tyrannical decency! I gorge.
I gorge upon her.
I yielded, gorging her harvest so decent.
Do I play at tyrant?
Inspired by Real Toads Weekend Mini Challenge: The Uncertainty of the Poet, hosted by Kim M. Russell. As depicted, I opted to go with a familiar tension of sorts.
I’m kind of bummed that Real Toads is so close to ending their amazing run, so I’m trying to contribute more to their remaining prompts. It’s bittersweet, but as with most finite things within our cosmos, nothing lasts forever.
