More the Fool, I

XXXI Days of Poetry - Day the Fifth

More the Fool, I

More the Fool, I - 
to seek Honor 
from the Past, 
half-crazed delirium, 
raw, gaping wound,
jangled nerve of 
miasmatic memory; 
treasure-map buried pain, 
waiting to be discovered 
and plundered, dug up 
by a rapacious Future, 
not believing until 
it's all-too-late that 
the Curse was real, 
and some things are 
better left in the ground.
