Altar

And so here

on this altar built there

with stones thrown at me

by You

And so carefully

gathered

by Me

I finally set down

that false image of justice.

I toss the match,

watch fake promises burn —

Their voices like specters dance

then howl

in the flames.

The smoke no longer interests

Me.
