IN THE ARMS OF FAILURE



Failure pulled me to her,
Into her bosom.

She forced her breast
Into my wailing lips,
And gargling,
I sucked in her bitter milk.

So I have cried,
Tears hard like rock.

My tears left their ports,
Laden with unspoken grief,
And docked here,
On this bearded face.

...


I know now, Failure's bitter milk
Gives' the great man teeth
To chew Success's sweetened meat,
Bones and all!
