a wayward fallen arrow

the evidence he drinks too much
is somewhere around 80 proof
and as many rounds as lovers
are inclined to pay for prospects

so it’s probably fair to say
the ambition and the aim
of this cherub in a diaper
is now less than Shakespeare found it

there’s the answer, should you seek it        
just a wayward fallen arrow
from a careless drunken angel
unexplained and unexpected

just a wayward fallen arrow
and i would, if so permitted
turn back time to shield you from it
though it changed my life for better

as i’ve felt so undeserving
of this gift your love has given
in its strength, and breath, and passion  
ever present and uplifting  

more than ever i had dreamed of
from a wayward fallen arrow
proof that flesh wounds can be mortal
when one angel shoots another
