Stall relinquish decision
total brings down to balance
the ideal forecloses propriety
steps somewhere with direction

the stone blessed in oil
no revelation destines plight
just the gratitude we shared here
to mark giving never ends

offering burnt in halves
the reminder the yoke binds greater
not lesser
might convalesces in homage
rests from sacrificing sons

crossroads will countless
by the surrender of ears reattached
oracles guess certainties
the suspecting chose to heed.
