Take Me To the Vault

page 54

Take Me To the Vault

Here, where
The terms & conditions
Of endearment are held

In trust,

Take me to the vault,
Through the bars & dials,
Closing their affairs

Behind us &

Here, I will watch
The evanescence of your balance
Like the ever-thinning oxygen,

My withdrawn darling.

Here, I will watch
(Detached, calculating &
With untenable interest)

Here in the vault,

Safe from the hands,
Pockets & fists,
The prying eyes & cables,

My beloved, my treasure,

Here, I will watch
You, in whom I have invested
Too much to allow any

To profit in your withdrawal.
