Book of Praises: Endings

How long has this rope
been wrapped around my neck?
The burns are there to witness
the three years spent
proving myself faithless.

Wishes are ropes. Walls are ropes.
Regrets are ropes.

You cut them and below,
to the muscle, to the bone,
as if to say carelessness
is reciprocal.

But you cut them.
