Just A Trick

Unarmoured knight

King without a crown

Vagabond with a forwarding address.

Comfortable with


Ambiguity added me as a friend online

Explains to me

The constant changing nature of things

Tells me to remain

And progress

The patience of kindness

I have grand urges

My desire is red in tooth and claw

But i’m not made a clown

By it, rather it’s

An armour you can’t see

Fits over the places

Where I’ve been wounded

The hitch in my step,

The shine in my eyes,

Just a trick of the light,

Baby girl,
