Artist


I eke out, darling, I eke out
I am ill and poor as you are
On the gold and under the membrane
You took everything, the angel and the devil

There are things,
Things I hide from my friends
Things I keep to myself
Things I hide from my own

One can live, so I will
Soulless and grey
One is suffering, so I will
Painfully but endurably

There are things I keep
And there are streets and fields
I walked with shame and ache
In the acme of my life again
