spanish bullfighter

like a hot iron upon the palm
i bullmark blackened charcoal
to paper, searing each line as i write.

the ring of a coffee mug on my journal
turns pencil to spear, coffee imprint 
to dusty hoofprint.... 

and i am as a spanish matador cursing
the majesty of the great beast.

with its last threshold of a breath 
in the pastures of praise, piercing 
its side with a number 2 pencil.

so gently in it's ashen shore of flesh 
i die a little too....
