XI: Ichor or Blood of Gods

The voodoo was our ill-omen,
A crypt...

Beyond the paint, 
I hear the lilt of a violin 
string stirring, 
lazy and languid 
creeping through 
a lowly god’s veins. 

His ichor flows and...

A Cold and Cloudy Day
These woods so lovely dark and deep,
Pray the lord my soul to keep,
Forgotten promises did not.
Ice castles of regret bleed
Rimed ichor from Pluto's cold pot.

Autumn Rain
It is the only thing alive for miles;
A wilted tree, with branches branched around
For hollow life—a crooked form—with piles
Of dying leaves, despite the rain around.

smiling away,
wooing willing hearts

Haywire ghetto, lingering corpses, malingering sunshine,
Malignant malediction, staccato with disseminating stench,
Portending: ichor, insipid blood and wenches.

Noxious oxygen, attenuated jasper,...
