Kong

KingKong

Religion makes no sense

There is no comfort there

Nor in the platitudes of old friends

If you only knew the names of the things

That are eating at my heart

You would wonder that I could nurture

Such monsters as these

I know I wonder – and I’m their host

Their inventor and proprietor

I should remove myself from company

Until I have straightened my way

Before I do or say something that shames me
