Watershed

by Matthew Zangen

Love, you are a feckless slope,
an inertial slip of days
swinging praise into picture frames,
taking turns tallied in time remembered
only in passing throes;

you are a magpie on a muddy grave
plucking blame from confessions,
singing songs of rain in vain processions,
asking if it's okay to be brave.

Let me guess... the slope is declining, like all good enablers.
