Cain in Isolation
There lies a sorrow beneath this yellow
odor which rises on two legs and mocks
what little man remains behind. Shallow
selfish greed of love and lover’s talk
of trust in self made shadows mere shadow
of hallowed spell disguised by holy frock.
Varied the means of divination, certain
though time and dark demons conspire, despair
by this hand shall never rend the curtain
nor set wraiths cull delusions of lone fear.
What is, is, beyond lamenting, Canaan
isolation. Love and love alone stands bare
– Smith, 1975
