Silver – stanza 17.3

Unbeknownst to Silver, Courlain took possession
Of the young man they intended for Malinov
Beloved of the vessel chosen for Silver, a year
Passed and Courlain slowly emerged from within
Razor points out at this point that he doesn’t
Know the full story; Silver died and possessed
The young woman; a few days later, long before
Silver could influence the young lady, she and
Courlain ran away, ultimately to the Americas
Silver doesn’t discuss the past, that is known
Courlain might, after a few beers, possibly
But Razor doesn’t really trust his accounts
Courlain will say anything to further his game
Honesty just isn’t something he aspires toward
So we don’t know and Malinov is left wondering
If Silver recognized Courlain in the young man
Before she died and if she did, did she go
Of her own accord, wanting to be with Courlain
Or perhaps she recognized him before she died
But didn’t have time to do anything about it
Which leads us to a more sinister question
Did Courlain kill Silver, facilitate her death
Knowing she would possess the young woman
Perhaps when she recognized his presence
Realizing the jig was up, he silenced Silver
Knowing the affection her vessel felt for his
Would suffice to overcome the recent love
She’d felt for Malinov as the vestiges
Of their relationship long ago was rekindled
