Caught

There is a deer here
.....veers from the head lamps
And shoots his sweltering skin
He slows
And feels alive
His chest heaves
The onslaught of branches
A rocking chair

he is swaddled by the darkness

.....has shed the light

dying ember.

mostly folk I think, suicide,
in an unhurried way opt out,
a life perhaps, unrealised,
and reflective flags dispel doubt.

and alcohol, remember?
this, dissipates away all might,
lighting up, from dying embers,
i raise a glass towards the night.

LAYered

Seeping through the cracks of my
Broken dreams...
Echoes of despair resound as
I hear the words ring;
Shame, failure, disgrace.

Hope betrayed me to misery,
The light...
let go of me to the deep.
Now pain is my medicine.

stuff of nature.

when i see these wooden beams
this wooden trap, those hempen strings,
this stuff of nature, these all seem
innocuous, such innocent things,
when found in Chandler's store
but, make folk dead, and crowds roar-
gallows fashioned, by lynch law.

Spinning


In dark fires  
of viral truths,
my spirit dances—
 
a dervish  
with this right hand  
held up and open  
to receive God’s grace,
 
this left hand faces down
towards the earth,
to give grace and light  
to a world reborn.

Cold Grief

Winter creeps  
single panes  
tragic gusts  
no shelter remains  
sorrow crawls  
within veins;  
darkness walks  
among the living  
leaving pale  
unforgiving  
memories hazy
barren to reliving;  
untold stories  
past lost  
grasping tightly  
at what cost?  
existent grief  
in winter’s frost
