He stood tall
lips ovular and soft

like babylonian sunset
and she

beautiful betrayer, 
delilah

stretched those long brown fingers
and washed

her hands in his hair
oh his hair, his hair, his hair

that damned achilles heel
scalp shorn, eyes gouged

he found he could see
in full clarity

that his mortal lust was
not condemnation

and blinded and broken
that boy brought the temple

onto its knees like only 
delilah could have brought him.
