The Blades of the Third Eye

the blades of the third eye open electric
sleep sits and runs for death
a coffin writes a promise with rich, ruddy dirt
a poet sinks in his eyes and coughs
winds ride the cold shout of crippled prayers
a wolf flows in distant sands
howling white moon

    Also, I'm glad you enjoyed it. The vision is the vision. It is the sum and division of its parts. And its parts are the whole.

    Simply put: Non-linear movies are created out of thin air from my imagination. These become my poems. Of course, I revise with flow in mind. But I mostly use my imagination.

    When I write poetry, I don't (most of the time), have a 'plan' or a 'template in mind'. I simply follow stream-of-consciousness. These poems reflect 'movies' that are going on in my 'mind's-eye'.
