(Betraying Spill-O)

 

Spill-O longed to be a pure creature.

But something happened.

And yes, he did ask for it.

 

He longed for relations, unhealthy or not.

He would knot the horizon itself

just to make it a friend.

 

And knotted it is,

so that even Buddhism becomes oppressive

in the lonely afternoon.
