The Millionth Excecution
Poetry by Diana Moreton

Gentle spirit, let me lay
cheek on furry breast
Let my tear wet tender paw
Before your skin they wrest

Let me ease your suffering
the moment that you go
to be hung, to be scourged
Korean song of woe.

Gentle spirit, rock with me
through our silent night
let us sneak together off
Escape the bully's bite.

Your pain is mine, I lay my cheek
upon your battered breast
bone of dog, whisk' of cat
In you I passed love's test.

1998 C. Sparkie
