Vuillard & Me, 2019, Oil on canvas, 60 x 48 in / 152 x 122 cm

I pray that the sut on my knees
from prayer 
serves as the pigment for our correspondence

That the ink in my skin
appear as
marks of celebration

That the sirens play a
jovial song
as I step out

and come to you.

Toiletries of A Sociopath

Many a man
drowned
in the viscous spittle
of groomed & starched leaders

Many a man
removed
for various atrocities
watching themselves dilute
in an overbearing seclusion
Oh, some things are worse than Death!
living vicariously through written letter

Many a man
hope
to allude divinities
certainty
does the sharp edge of the gleaming blade
caress the nape of any neck?
long, harsh steps to the city center
for a judgment matinee

Charismatic murderers find respite
in the definitive pessimism
that is atheism
Stout and enduring men
have their strong, rigid
cheekbones pressed against
the knee of a deity

Hidden, I
pirouette among the linden trees
on the promenade.

— Honor Titus (2016)
