what kind of reckoning is it

what kind of reckoning is it
what is the moral accounting system:
an abacus
or a scar on your cheek;
notches in the bedpost
and on your hips

what kind of melancholy is it
who seizes your wrists
and slams them into the car door
ratcheting up the sky over your head
for the show
