Recusant

Recusant

I always bundle you into
The dark priest hole,
Active, but vestments
Muted and all ceremony
Secret from prying eyes.

I'm a recusant, double-
Dealing liar of sorts, an
Outward conformist with
My two fingers crossed
In hope behind my back.

A partisan for love, taking
Pot-shots from window-tops
Hoping to strike your heart
With a silencer's dull blow
Against your stout defence.

Must I always mouth words
Of contradiction to your ear
The words of attachment
That would intimacy beg
And my adoration profess?

My cunning cannot conceal,
For all my one-half truths,
That my affection is too
Much of ardour, too much
Of love to honestly reveal.

Good work again Saturn.
Take care.
That I might drink, and leave the world unseen.

That is very striking Saturn.
John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.
