Revocation 2



I was born with seven souls—
praise the All!—

beautiful things,
and I've watched them die
one then another,
starved, drowned, or otherwise
snuffed out—
curse the Incompletion!

I'm down to one,
the Soul of Suffering and Dismay,
a faint wisp thinning toward vacuum.
To love something with every breath
and come to this!

I revoke everything.
