‘Betrayal’ by Vincent Poirier

Long has it been, and
we have small minds
in lieu of profound thought.
Greedy for a fallacy,
human, flaws inherent
run, afraid of time,
catching up, would
raise hell, to satiate
innate desires. He has.
That is the betrayal.

 


VINCENT POIRIER started writing at age 16 in French. He later got accepted at the Université du Québec en Outaouais for a BA in professional translation, and started writing in English to widen his possibilities both as a poet and in life.
