Riddance by Randall Johnson

Posted in Randall Johnson with tags on May 15, 2011 by Scot

A lowdown saffron moon
does not forgive a thing.

Tide rising on the beach
won’t take the fall for this.

Don’t blame some distant tribe;
you don’t belong to one.

You claim the things you want
just like a wild dog.

Forgiveness isn’t mine
to grant, not that I would.

Forgetting wastes the truth;
I’m saving what remains.
