Light of the Devil's Chord - Day 39

That whisper of the night before struck me powerfully, 
It affected me more than I intended to admit

But nothing to compare with the suicidal, lovely
Red glow of Death’s betrayal— and to ME!...Read More

His life raft drifted helplessly in an ocean of tears and lost dreams

		In tangible finite and impermanent flow

He lost his compass and the needle festered in Tom’s purulent arm

		A portal to hot flushes of receding pain

Chasing sea dragons and hobgoblins...Read More

Tattoo appeared on her shoulder;
If body bare,
Would stare;
What we should do is scold her.

On her arm she had been tattooed;
We read,
Never bled,
Seen so clearly viewed...Read More

Broken Glass
We drink to Life. L'chaim. Summer smiles
In Leah's eyes, June sunlight gently glowing.
The glass waits on the earth, bowl, base, and stem 
Remembering. Then, shards beneath 
My foot. Then, Mazel tov, the guests all cry.
