Out of Love

How the night knew to sing my suspicions
I suspect I know
From below, it was asked
From above, it was allowed
Relevant, He knows, out of love

While on the witness stand I writhed
Wishing mercy meted out
The prosecution testified
Every truth that I’d denied
Each and every day, out of love

Played at the speed of metal melting
Your aside and afterthought
Your wailing wall
Your laugh out loud was I
And I…out of luck, out of love

I saw evidence
You wanted more
You were displeased
And were furthermore
Undeniably, out of love

With every aching possible
I awoke
I thanked the judge and jury
Arose and walked out free
Out of love

Labyrinth, Alice’s Garden;
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
