i have taken
the tapestry of Nietzsche
to pull a dark thread out,
and so too
with Shakespeare and Wagner
while Marcus Aurelius and Margaret Atwood –
theirs may remain whole.

but the others,
when the corrupt was dragged out
they fell to golden shreds;
so what was i to do
but to weave something new
and shelter within its warmth.
