The bad boys were defeated on 
Planet Earth,
Their New Year held no mirth,
All they could think was revenge,

I have a little sting saved up for you
Because I am not fond of your species.
Most arachnids aren’t.
But I do not have to stay an arachnid.
I can shapeshift into knotted cords with lead spikes.
I can be found in the desert

Across every mountain, ocean and pond!

Two lifetimes ago,
	a river of stars flowed, the
	Scorpion’s heart a vibrant
	crimson, the flame of heaven.
	And like a scorpion did I
	fall, lips glossy with 
	hemlock, tender with swallowed
	rose thorns.

One lifetime ago,
	smoke smothered the sky,
	hail of fire and melting
	bronze, 110 chaotic stars...Read More

Ethiopian Sand

Miles on exhausted feet
Walking in dessert heat
Sand storms cause disarray 
Individuals lose their way
Some fall from  dehydration and fatigue 
Others lost to snake and scorpion feigns 
Hiding in ankle-high plants-underbrush
Grazed by donkey, camel,  and sheep

My scorpion 
Come near 
Hold me dear

It tastes of succulent fear
When you kiss me
Venom enters my veins 
Leaving me in excruciating pain 
Then you scurry away in the dark 
And only return...Read More

Under jackboots and bone crushing dogs

With my traducers
At the gate

Tonight I'll saddle up the scorpion
kicking to hell its armored flanks
ratchet legs charging straight ahead

claws snapping at the cooling desert wind,
hunting for fiery pieces of moon tinged sin.
