Small, a poem


I write the small sins of my life
very large. I fill books with them,
dressed up as great passions, the vices
of a man that I am not.

Let me lie to you. Let me
hide in a thicket of words, grown
tall as jungles, dense as morning’s
sunlit distances. Time will

remember only these pages, singing
their tunes across tomorrow, singing
of this small man, written large.
