paying off old sins

by J.J. Campbell

acid wash my soul
under a neon moon
and call me a new

the fools may believe
in whatever new religion
is being sponsored by
a celebrity this week

i'll be fine with my
cross, my guilt and
my regret

rinse and repeat
with a glass of
red wine

the house down the
road burned down
a few days ago

i gave the family
cash instead of

given the no
trespassing sign
i doubted they
my generosity

of course, they don't
know my reason for
giving the money

paying off old sins is
a lonely business
