Revenge -a raw obsession hard to control


Revenge

To keep score is to water wound
green like grief that itches
when scratched
makes it worse. to let go
of a grudge is to be empty
like the bare earth
harmonious with all difference,

immune to any slap of pain ,
where there is no wound
and nothing to be wounded
save mercy and love
but to forgive
the unrepentant is to sculpt
on running sand.
