Rest in the lounge of words where
open spirits of gangsters and heroes
fight with open pen and paper to
design the lives of those who are
never afraid, as balloons burst or
penned words fly.
Bask in the eclipse of a hidden
world to discover a psychic,
haunting presence. The apparitions
plague the pen with darkness or
growl like chained mad dogs
fighting the battles to express
the more luscious wine hidden
in the dregs at the bottle.
