Exit  (by John Totten)

 

Today I took my own vote;

one you could not kill.

Today I burned an old rope;

redemption held me still.

 

Today I took a breath;

eyes drawn to the hill.

Today I drank mercury;

can’t ever disclose the skill.

 

Today I convict my hope,

my gentle little crime.

Today I dream of home;

must exit this time.
