testament

Klaus J. Gerken

i was late
for the appointment
quite on purpose
i might add
there were angels
in the alley
and a rabbit
in my hat

no one knew me
where saints gathered
it was something
of a deal
i mean really
what can happen
when i have no
soul to steal

bring me paper
bring me cotton
bring me bitter
wine to drink
i will always
be here waiting
teetering
on the brink

so forgive me
if i wander
off the muddy
beaten path
i will never
never ever
quite surrender
what i have
