Your life: your life
surrendered, given up.
Such a casual phrase-
given up, like a game
one grows tired of:
you are given up, lost,
immolated by expectation
to a stranger god who waits

unaltered, unloved,

for one more offer.
How much you give
is inconsequential:
give up more, until
you can no longer bleed,
until you’re denounced
in your own destruction.
(December 2012)
