Moon Man

Achan’s Curse

My father’s sins of yore Are knocking on my door A pounding I abhor They often visit me Garments, gold and silver Are buried ‘neath my tent Better than the closet But they are seen by you My hair colored silver There’s no time to lament I’ve no heart for regret My passions are askew …
