Lost to a watery grave

we will sit around our meager light
until it burns into the dirt floor
and becomes a memory

inconsolable 
heart that must weep to release 
what the flesh can't overcome.

And as I wander toward my grave

Inside this tomb
the spirits speak.


They hate the gloom

They fuss and fume
and shout and shriek.

Inside this tomb
the spirits speak.

MANKIND'S LAST HOPE

Life like Autumn's leaves
returns to Earth's coldest soil; 
Nature reawakens
each spring, but life never does:
Mankind's last hope lays in grave.

Best foot forward

Front-line in depth of mortar
Whistling shells and screams of torture
Blood clott gurgles death bell tolls
Hell of pain in body enthralls
Danger rings apprehension stalls

Death


Death has no hold on me
For am only asleep for but awhile
I have only slipped into the valley of rest
To rise again to be at my best
For this life is only just a test.

dandelion clock

dandelion clock
on the half hour
and he might miss his train

he does
and curses strongly
enough to stir the dead

these
are blowing dandelion clocks
stifling their graves
