“The Order of Castigation” by Rachel M. Newlon

The Order of Castigation

This guilt is a sentence.
This guilt is a sentence of separation.
This guilt is a sentence of separation deferred.
This guilt is a sentence of separation deferred by offense.

This offense is an influence.
This offense is an influence of impact.
This offense is an influence of impact wasted.
This offense is an influence of impact wasted on youth.

This youth pleaded.
This youth pleaded in panels.
This youth pleaded in panels of activities.
This youth pleaded in panels of activities and offense.

An offense of force.
An offense of saturation.
An offense of own time.
An offense of friendship.
An offense of trust.
An offense of judgment.
An offense of defense.
An offense of law.
An offense of death.
An offense of impact.

Rectified by raised Bible for there is manslaughter.
Rectified by Sunday for there is binging.
Rectified by empty pews for there is blindness.
Rectified by choir for there is law.
mistake wasted mistake conviction mistake accident mistake alcohol
mistake probate mistake passenger mistake drink mistake world
mistake…isn’t free
Religious sentence
Judge him prior.
