oedipus

not even tears
can be shed
for there is nowhere
from which they can fall

now, old man
who i disparaged
who i feared
now, we are become one
yet so different
you with the glazed whites
of age
and i
shedding not tears
but the blood of
implausibility
and culpability
and it is salty
like tears
