The truth hurts

marbles

A planet of marble
rolls in one hand.
Slippery, slight.
A weapon.

You feel it burn
in the quiet night.
Spilling its bile
in blue veins;
its endless circle
clinks, bumps, noses
the edges of sleep,
disturbing dreams.

A planet of marble
rolls in your head
Slippery, slight.
A verdict.
