Only The Innocent

Tomorrow’s dawn should find me

On the Yellow Card Road:

Framed, guiltless but shamed

Between the rising, rain-filtered sun

And what I already knew.

The ignorants that passed sentence

Cared not even enough

To know a name to forget …

But I shoulder their spiteful salt load

And carry a smile that only

The truly innocent can hold.
