Everywhere You Shouldn’t Be

Sin
every time you try
Every poet and painter
every sculptor and composer
Sin
before the paper
before the canvas
before the clay
before the notes
Every attempt
an effort to include all
Every word
every bird
Sin
salted gluttony
Words hijack and sketches
pull until you are
everywhere you shouldn’t be
Wear a jacket
pull up the hood
Maybe they won’t recognize you
You
and your sin

Flavorful
