Lounge of Language

Written by: julie heckman

Rest in the lounge of language where
spirits of gangsters fly and heroes
fight for the blood of maidens to 
design the lives of those who are 
never afraid, as seasons burst and
penned words seize the skies.

Bask in the eclipse of a hidden 
world to discover a psychic,
haunting presence. The apparitions
plagues the pen in darkness or 
growls like chained madmen 
fighting battles to express
the more luscious wine hidden 
in the dregs at the bottom of 
the bottle.
