It Was Naught but the Toss of a QuarterTo Tyler Clay's previous piece     As a Tomorrow ThatTo Tyler Clay's next piece

Do you take her to
Prize and unlock
Like a religion
Or a shallow breath,
To inscribe her ink
Upon society for you;
The passion to relinquish
And content -
A hinge of your door
Swaying with the burden -
Telling both of your
Unified success from
One collar to the next
As if to shake hands
At the altar.
To say you do when
Lies tell the truth
Once again.
