Surrender’s Third Moment

Surrender's Third Moment

Break open to creations we're within,
crash over to the hellholes where we're put —
you be the bolt this time, I'll play the nut,
you do how hard we're hit, I'll give it spin.
So making up our own minds makes it sin?
Then damn me, damn you, curse us both, but what
consumes the willing body head to foot
makes up for what we've lost, so let's begin.

We'll have our own decisions to regret,
you stuck with yours and I won't give you mine
to nurture, those we'd just as soon forget,
as soon surrender over that design
that makes us feel indebted to our debt
as though we see no promise to combine.
