reprieve

pardons are not
as easy as an ink blotch
with an “x” marking the spot
and moment
and second
in time
where evidence
is outweighed by recompense

the remnant
represents
and circumvents
the legless laws
lying low like
old hammocks
betwixt two oaks
two thoughts
two philosophies
versus
in courts
and peers
peer inside
peer as
peer from
eyelids now
fastened
forever
frozen
unable to seek
or know justice
or speak from 6 feet
of crust
as such
we pick pushed daisies
paying homage
to the fallen
heroes
finding no reprieve

Reprieve
