Incomplete

A fire that burned itself out – 
a city which kept on breathing
an anger that softened
with the arrival of self

I’ve myself an animal
and she needs me to breathe
I’ve built myself a family
and they need me kept clean

For myself I have refused
priests and sainthood, ghosts and blood
an exorcism worthy of a victim
and an empty glass for an empty woman

Forgive me –
For I am here, again
