Reasonable Doubt


Decimated pillars, cracked
Pearlescent floors and walls,
Pablo brush strokes,
Picasso like stories
Towards an open minded sky,

State of mine, criminal,
Blue cotton uniform,
Justice tucked by the hip,
Power trip, polished chip,
On shoulders of servants,
Possible sluggers, finger guns,
Make believe causes,

White canvases, four walls,
Strait jackets for baby makers,
Wish for life denied more time,
Pressed knees back the suspected,
Shaking grief moments later,
Phone lays speechless
As it all falls down.

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
