Burning Man part2

You refuse, refusing the salvant call,
laying there in fetal position,
enthralled by my hex of vinegar and scrawl of liquids release that just seem to pour out of me organically.
Hissing in Wormwood's frequency dwelling, Hollywood "your signature home" learning-annex-auxilliary.
My park and...Read More

Agemo - the goddess of forms
Hoary Decree, dateless Order, 
Anthroposophy of the cradle,
Bewilderment of upper echelon,
Agemo - the goddess of forms.

You are the word, you utter not any;
You are the history, you tell no tale;
Cogent than ingredients and concoction,
Fiat is your potent and reverend name.

If bombs have families
( after Yehuda Amichai measured the diameter of a bomb)

At times I have this curious feeling that
I am married to a bomb.
But then, I often ponder, I am not even distantly
Related to any explosive tribe.
How come, then, I am spousing...Read More

Creature Of The Night
Amethyst rings on long slender fingers
Onyx nails as black as jet
Scent of jasmine and sulphur…mixes and lingers
Held hostage enmeshed in black satin net
…She tirelessly haunts my nights…

Green eyes that glow with an aura of fire
And pierce the darkest of night
Cheekbones...Read More

Sans Solace

Premium Member Driftwood on the Styx
Three misfits sought mischief along serenity shore
when a boatman slashed through the bluing mist
with driftwood oars honed by a river called Styx.

They were wild and naive and looked quite aghast
for boatmen usually gather the worn and the weak
but the misfits...Read More

Strikes the target truth into the heart of justice

A balmy day in February,
A flash of yellow's all I saw,
A welcome harbinger of Spring –
A paper bird upon the wing.

By name, a brimstone butterfly,
So apposite, its sulphur hue
Glows brightly, fresh, upon the eye,
Light as a feather it flits on...Read More

Beware of Trouble Incensed
Trouble left alone hurts no soul
Endowed with enough wisdom
To score no own goal
When trouble turns vicious in the kingdom 

Where trouble finger on the trigger of his machinegun
Slays intruders by the dozen
If wisdom devices from them run
Towards the avenger denizen

The beggar outside the supermarket
You swore was picked up later
In a flashy car
Sat there in the sun for 8 hours
While you pissed & moaned
All the way home
To your bookless
With a chlorinated pool
Where one day you will 
Face down float

Dragons, dragonflies and Huffle-winks and the girl
She crept in silence down to the swamp

And saw the dark cave where nobody goes,

This whole place shrouded in eldritch trees

Primordial feeling of preternatural bewitching,

The swamps felt alive yet was as green as the trees

Lily pads sat upon it and...Read More

Images flickering in the candle light,

Shadows flash across the night sky,

I feel the air all around start to rumble

And the strong smell of sulphur from above me tumble

And I knew it was the dark angel flying again

Dear Winnie
Dear Winnie,
I will not despair for you,
For you are here with us,
Buried in the sanctuary of memory,
Our beloved mother and sister,
The mother of a nation
You carried on your shoulders
The burden of tigers and lions,
Until you became the lioness,

A King Lamenting
A king entered in a robe,
Clothed in a raiment of
Multitudous colors:
Vast and enormous is he,
Occupying matters of matters,
Spaces of Spaces.
His presence accomodates no vacuum.
Before him was raident throne,
Swathed in light and graced
With fire of sulphur regalia.
The tenure of his kingdom

Ascent From Hell
Sounds from the underworld
Dulcet tones from demons groans
Up through the atmosphere
Fetid heat from rotting feet
Brimstone spits sulphur clouds
Satanic freaks bones crack and creak

They're the sounds of ascent
They're the sounds of ascent from...Read More

You will be here for a spell
