Very Carnal - ‘14

Nihilist war drum

They came naught for the crystaline dreams.

to which they merely trampled under boots.

they came naught for the silken veiled saints.

to which they cast in putrid sulfur flame.

they came naught for the silver towers.

to which they razed in mad decrees.

they came naught for the humble mute terra.

to which they turned with blood and salted.

they came naught for the boons of air and sea.

to which they spoiled for ten fold generations.

they came naught for the innocent yet scarred.

to which they took cold iron to their belly.

they came naught for the temples of the old ones.

to which they had no gods but their own reflections.

they came naught…

for we hang ourselves.

Dry well wishes

No sanction in the throes of the liar’s temple.

only the fool’s word is valid,

in a house of mirrors.

tearing away the veil,

to only cry foul of the blinding lights.

honest tongues only suffer,

when the fruit of half truths thrive.

feint this fixation upon dawn’s shadow.

daydreaming of such embracements.

upon slick tapestry honed habits.

languid pause of liquid intoxicants.

Underground in the sky augmentation.

Displacement of lost objects,

ball point slashes intricate hue. 

wheels burn upon sandy landscapes. 

long hard desires to consume such fruit.

tantalized such horizons unmerited.

splinted rainbows cascade upon them.

a time and place like no other.

passing along the muses call.

within the kingdom of borderlands.

capture the fae daydream.

to know of the beat we derive.

I just had the most amazing night at The Spot Providence, Created two awesome illustrations with other creative minds working on the front stage. Did one of my best readings to date. Made only better by the house yelling for a encore. my night made only finer by a gentleman telling me i was a fixture of the scene. I can never find the words to show my appreciation for all the support and allowing me to share my own madness.
