Leaving the Fold

I want to tear my flesh in half
Crack my breastplate apart
rip my still beating heart out
lay it on your holy altar.

"Here," and it would splatter on the marble and splash
the golden chalices with a human's blood.
"Take and eat."

Former Fathers

You were only proud of me
when I was your parrot.
