Troth

Bring the light, uplift and show its flame! I am doing the god’s service, see!

~Cassandra, Euripides’, The Trojan Women

Oh, you mad, mad
Fool!
Whenever will you
learn
your only hope
lies
in Silence!

Truth is wanted
nowhere
nowhere
No
Where.

It is a reel;
a tortuous tarantella that
No one wants to dance.

With you.

So, gather the
shards
of broken hair into
your bloody hands.
Press them to
points where
pulse might
once have
throbbed,

and try, try
TRY
to see the
Madness
is not
Theirs.

It is
Yours.
