I didn’t know about that
un-weighted mass in his
head – a hid malignancy
or left unmentioned? – A
truth filed aside because
of all his other weights &
measures under his skin
& buried early? Propped
up for viewing – as in life
& love – he said nothing –
showing what lay ‘neath
his shroud not ever said
aloud [fronting up as his
foot slipped in that lock –
& it bared his last game]
& my version of his story
recaps his Words of God
verbatim – I rob them all
