Temptation

The temptation you provide astounds me

The fox beneath the tree of grapes

I feel the dew between my toes,

The grass filling with a new day’s life

To be so torn

Beneath so solid a sky

Augh but to be free of choices

To be free of consequences

Wrong as the devil

Desirable as the tree of knowledge

Agnostic views with Christian themes

On the bench, looking, gazing

Hoping and dreading and knowing the end

For the end lies with me.
