No Monster

The Mariner and the Sea Monster Painting by Bradley Stivers
by Bradley Stivers

where you’re the titanium
& the army is bulletproof
where you’re the king
& the territory is aloof
where the clouds are vivid
& the stones are sapphire
where the loathe is immense
& the agony is over
you confess,
you apologize,
you succumb,
Thy sentiments, no monster.
