“Just as Wild”

A wild one

Appearing in early light

Glowing face


Living alone

Longing for mercy






Trembling soul

Humble thoughts


Our mouths

Our faces

We speak

We listen


Yet faces and mouths lie


The wild one

A gentlemen

Raised on virtue

And bad manners


Cursing like a pirate

Drinking just as hard


Sins are stubborn

Especially so

With a tattooed spirit

And a pierced heart

That only a love

Just as wild

Can tame
