Inside Ink

In the pub reading poetry, 

marking pages with cigarette papers; 

Wandering the voyeur through their dying thoughts.

A Jet sheen Crow perched upon a verse, 

shining black stranger in dreams of ink; 

They publish the soul’s dance.

Naked hearts beating in the baking solar eclipse, 

darkness breathing ancient fire,

searing light from the eye’s glacial halo, 

frozen land of a broken gaze; 

Torturing those expectant.

He can’t always smile, 

love drinks blood from the tap of mercy, 

fooling the jester into ringing bells; 

Herald of the coming treason.

Naked death breathing life into Winter, 

the sap rises, 

banishing imagined demons from the human condition.

All for the dawn of a sleeping phantom’s end, 

where we worship with a smile, 

that which we blindly condemn, 

with eyes of frozen fire; 

Eternally burning memory.
