The Sentence Is Preferable

I’ve done no crime I have no sentence

aside from my most painful wake

and all my life once my eyes open

yet although I know I cannot start

or end a sentence with one before it

I find myself beginning more

and never accomplishing the waking

and wonder if I pile crimes

to avoid the act of ever taking

sight upon all my life ahead
