and post notes and photos about your poem like Gregory R Barden.
It fills the vial, life, quite thick as blood
And presses like a levee 'neath a flood
The hammer, down ...
It trembles in the dark, a wage of want
A seraphim without the wings to flaunt
The crooked clown ...
It screams the horrid silence as a beast
To seed the dim damnation for its feast
The frightened frown.
