Poem: A River Song

The river sings against the wind It sings a song against the wind It sings a song of valleys bridged And tumultuous torrents of other haunts.   The forest sings against the wind It sings a song against the wind It sings a song of dotted hills And baby birds of higher trees.   The […]

Poem: America

Tired eyes raise to the golden walls Their grey tears mirrored by the savior’s eyes The hard brown pews bring infinite comfort To the lost innocents who preside here in the red city.   Here, in the dense black rooms Death awaits in shades of black brighter than yesterday’s fire Yet a blue flame, in […]

Poem: Half-Baked

Black and blue, brown and white, The bundles I carry are fluffy and light; My eyes are heavy, my garment blood red, It is scarlet for my dreams, which are regrettably now dead.   I chose not this path, I chose not this name My efforts to change have flickered in vain; If only there […]

Poem: Hourglass

Poem: Beach Blue

The tin-foil star was torn from the sky but burns a bit in sunlight. The beach chills me to the core, today. I’m wearing shorts.   My hollowed chest is a tree trunk.        Blackened burning in my nose        Roaring drowsiness tugs at my fingers        The grass […]

Turtle, turtle, stay away No sir, no sir, we shall not play. I know you seem alright to me But still, a snapper you could very well be.   Don’t look at me like that! I used to love turtles. But one day one murdered my Great Aunt and now my blood curdles Every time […]
