Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

five righteous

23 May 2014



I feel a lot

like I am pleading,

bargaining with angels,

privy to some foreknowledge

of imminent destruction,

and hoping against all hope

that among this population of words,

there might be found

only five righteous.

And even with the grace to escape,

I wonder if I, yes I,

might be the one tempted

to glance back

and forever lose

my humanity.
