Michael Helsem

Not Anymore

Took pennies for a cupcake. Not anymore.
Could say it in a tryptique. Not anymore.

There was a time his glittering blood would freeze
gazing on a cop car. Not anymore.

Armies of investigative reporters
tracked graft & ilka cold case. Not anymore.

A country used to bow & meekly furl
its flag once it was conquered. Not anymore.

Graywyvern saw in gods a useful flerd
for forging social concord. Not anymore.
