My Mistake

(For the Good Christian People across the street)

Thinking we were friends,
not simply resources,

Seeing two-way traffic
on this one-way street.

Now I see the river flows
always in one direction.

My mistake – ours even –
Seeing your smiling face,
Thinking it had something to do with me.

Now I know I was transparent:
A thing,
A source,
A soul bound for Hell,
Dropping off a few things you could use on the way.
